Public Attitudes

Public Attitudes

We're crowdfunding in 2022!

What People Want

A 2020/1 public attitudes survey conducted by the UK’s Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy showed that:

    • 66% of people thought renewable heating systems would be  expensive to install6.
    • 75% thought renewable energy developments should provide  direct benefits to local communities7.

The lowest fifth bracket of incomes fell by an average 3.8% per year between 2017 and 2023.8

What happened to Community Energy?

The end of Feed-in-Tariff stopped £127M of investments into Local Community Renewable Energy Projects9.

The complexity of regulations, coordinating stakeholders, expensive legal, financial and technical skills and the need for volunteers have contributed to a small overall number of UK projects (300)10.

Now, community energy accounts for around 0.5% of energy generated in the UK10.

0% effect

With rising living costs outstripping wage growth, the upfront cost of renewable technology continues to stop people accessing the cheap, green energy it produces.
