What is the Energy Hub?
The Energy Hub is an online complement to The Converging World’s community energy programme - 'Power to the People'.
It is intended as a tool for community groups, working to understand and reduce energy use and CO2 emissions. It is unique and powerful in that it allows rapid calculation of baseline energy use. It then allows energy efficiency and renewable energy projects to be planned and their projected and actual effects on energy use and CO2 emissions recorded against these basleines. In this way, you can keep track of progress and help to inspire new projects.
In addition, it is inteneded as tool for local government, especially local authorities, who are engaging with community groups over energy use. The same baselines available to communities are available at local authority level, and the platform aggregates individual community projects so that their overall effect on energy use and CO2 emissions can be seen, including their contribution to CO2 reduction tragets deriving from national targets.
Who are The Converging World?
The Converging World (TCW) are a charity that use investments in large-scale renewable energy to fund their work at home and abroad:
Community Energy in the UK:which is probably why you are here...
Development work in India:supporting communities to grow sustainably.
How can we help you?
TCW’s free Power to the People programme has the following steps:
Baseline assessment:how much energy do you use?
Energy efficiency:how much can you reduce this demand by?
Renewable energy:how much of the residual demand can you supply with renewable energy?
We can help you through this process and support you in getting your projects in the ground. click to read more...
