Join Ethex, with Energise Barnsley for a cuppa and a chat to learn more about this amazing organisation that is making a real social and environmental impact.

In order for the UK to meet net-zero targets, we need to significantly increase renewable energy production. More than 20% of the UK’s carbon emissions currently come from our homes, much of which is generated by fossil fuels.
Energise Barnsley is the largest community energy project in the UK and to date, has installed solar panels on hundreds of council-owned properties in the Barnsley area, including over 320 council homes and over 150 smart batteries. They are currently raising finance via a Community Share Offer ion Ethex to:• Continue running his pioneering renewable energy project, creating clean energy ant=d taking decisive action against climate change• Ensure local residents and businesses continue to benefit from lower energy bills, tackling the issue of fuel poverty in the area.• Help educate more local people and businesses on the benefits of renewable energy generation and help fund new community initiatives. In addition to tackling fuel poverty, reducing energy bills and building a stronger community, all profits created from the energy generation are funnelled back into the community via the Community Energy Fund.
During our chat, we’ll learn more about the incredible impact this project has already had, their innovative solutions to fuel poverty and who is benefitting from the community fund. We will also discuss how the model is replicable for other areas around the UK.
