As employers, landlords, policy-makers, energy consumers and civic leaders, local authorities are key players in the shift to reducing the energy we use, getting more from renewable sources and tackling fuel poverty.
CSE provides a range of services for local authorities designed to help councils meet their current targets and commitments more effectively and to develop their role in building a low-carbon, sustainable energy future for their local area.

CSE works closely with the local authorities in our ‘home patch' of Somerset and former Avon. Linking closely with the work of the National Energy Advice Service in the South West plus other charitably-funded local projects, we carry out a range of advice and outreach activities for local householders and community groups. See here for information on our local advice services.
We also helped to develop and now manage a number of grant schemes in partnership with our local councils including the Warm Streets grant scheme, the Bristol Energy Efficiency Scheme and Somerset West Hard to Treat.
