Various downloadable documents designed to support people undertaking energy projects in their community
Useful tools for community groups
CSE’s extensive range of event resources and eye-catching models are available for you to hire for your own community events. We’ve produced a guide showing what’s available and how to book.
One of our most popular resources is our set of insulation models (below) showing interior solid wall insulation (left), cavity wall insulation (centre), and exterior wall insulation (right).
In addition, we have produced materials which are free to download, distribute, copy and adapt:
Solar PV checklist: questions to ask installers
Holding an energy day: guidance
Solar boat workshop
Energy survey: how to do an energy audit of a community building
Fair deal feed-in tariffs
Common concerns about wind
Community energy event: creating your own kit
Approaches to community consultation and engagement
Switching fuel suppliers: short presentation
Our favourite guides and tools for community energy can be downloaded from The Source. This is a CSE website that we launched in June 2012 and which contains material produced by us, by our friends, and even by our competitors. We reckon The Source is the best place to find the most useful stuff for community energy projects.
It's also worth checking out our series of advice leaflets covering many different aspects of domestic energy.
Good luck with your community energy project!
