Saffron Walden Community Energy is a not for profit organisation set up to work on grass-roots carbon reduction initiatives in Saffron Walden and Uttlesford.
We were formally registered as Community Benefit Society in December 2020 and are currently being supported by Essex County Council and Community Energy South in the early stages of business planning and funding/grant applications.
What we currently need are more volunteers to help run the organisation and also to work on getting some of our project ideas going.
Please get in touch if you would like to find out more!
We are currently in discussion with Community Energy South and our local councils to identify some initial projects and sources of funding.
Please get in touch if you have ideas or register for updates below.
Buy your energy from a company using 100% renewable electricity. Some also have green gas tariffs as well.
If you’re a frequent flyer, can a flight be replaced by a train journey or video conference call?
A healthy, balanced diet requires very little meat or dairy and can make a significant impact on your carbon footprint. Also, try and buy local, seasonal food.
Walk or cycle for shorter distances (with added health benefits) or take public transport.
Get better insulation, use more energy efficient devices, and consider fossil fuel free heating.
