How to save energy in your community building

If you run, lease or own a community building like a scout hut, village hall, community association building, or even a local church, you’re probably thinking about the rising cost of energy bills and how this is going to impact how your building is used. 

At the Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE), we’re already hearing of communities forced to make difficult decisions to close buildings or limit activities because they can’t afford energy bills. These community hubs are important places where local people come together to socialise, learn, access key services, stay warm and access affordable food. Here’s some energy saving top tips from our community team at the CSE…

We’re facing a tough winter across the UK with the rising cost of living and spiralling cost of energy. And even with new financial support from central government, this isn’t enough to keep some community buildings warm. 

Along with our partners, CSE continues to lobby the government and large-scale funders for appropriate, meaningful support. But in the meantime, there’s a range of options to help save energy in your community building right now. Not only will this help keep costs down, if your building is warmer and more comfortable, more people will want to use it.
