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 provides a variety of tools to help you understand, analyse and reduce energy usage in your community. All communities can have a home page that presents their energy usage and steps they have taken to reduce it. People can register projects that are planned, operational or just an idea and the effects of these projects estimated.
