Northern Powergrid has helped identify the positive social impact of undertaking community energy projects in order for more projects to succeed. An independent report has taken an in-depth look at eight projects supported by Northern Powergrid through its Community Energy Seed Fund to explore the environmental and social benefits of community projects. The network company said identifying benefits above financial savings and local investment can “only be beneficial in helping more projects succeed and deliver further social benefits for local people and communities”. It added that the report shows community energy “is more than just energy – it’s an outreach activity that develops, strengthens, and educates a local community”.
