The Littlebury Energy Project

What would be needed to decarbonise a whole village? This is the question it is hoped will be answered by a project taking place in Littlebury.

Reaching net zero carbon emissions will require a huge change in the way that our energy is produced and distributed, including much more localised energy generation, and far greater focus on energy efficiency.

In 2021, Littlebury Parish Council, along with Uttleford District Council and Essex County Council expressed an interest in developing a Community Energy Plan to investigate how a village could transition from mainly oil based heatingto clean, renewable energy.
