Community Energy Birmingham 

Community Energy Birmingham aims to reduce carbon emissions in Birmingham with community energy projects. In the 2010s, CEB installed solar panels on community buildings across the city, raising the capital investment with community shares. Since the end of solar subsidies, CEB has been working with Big Solar Coop to continue installing community-owned renewable energy on rooves in Birmingham. CEB has also established a home energy advice service for able-to-pay customers in order to help the early adopters in the retrofit market make informed decisions. As a member of the BrumEnergy consortium, CEB will be expanding its energy advice service to a broader range of Birmingham residents, with a focus on hard-to-treat properties.
