Renewable Energy Project Management and Feasibility Studies
We are at hand to manage renewable energy projects, feasibility studies and funding strategies for our community.
Our team is made up of industry experts and we have created a wider hub of expertise by working with partners throughout the community energy network. We understand how to make a project work for us all from initial ideas to fully operational.
We have access to a wide variety of funds for local renewable energy projects. To date we have secured over £80,000 for local projects and are ready and waiting to help make your project happen.
We are particularly interested to hear from residents groups or associations, local schools and education facilities, business centres and any high energy use operations.

Free Energy Advice
As part of our 'Power Partners' project funded by UK Power Networks, Forest Row Energy is offering free energy advice to help you save money on your energy bills, get support to keep warm and for energy efficiency. We can also help you switch to the best value 'green energy provider'.
We can offer you a free 1-2-1 advice session by phone, can come along to a local group or event and also train people who work with vulnerable groups so that they can save money, keep warm and reduce their carbon footprint.
If you are interested in this support please email:
We also have a free information booklet with lots of information to help you.
If you are local business or organisation our corporate membership offers you the chance to get expert support to save money, do your bit for the environment and be part of a positive local movement.
Corporate membership starts at £250 for Small and Medium Size Enterprises (SME's). In return you will get one day of renewable energy and energy efficiency consultancy, usually £300. Members have used this to kick start solar PV projects, to improve energy efficiency and access funding. You will also be entitled to one further day of consultancy at the reduced rate.
You will become a member of Forest Row Energy and be invited to have your say in the development of your local community energy company. You will also receive a membership certificate that you can use for marketing purposes.
