Innovative digital tools to build a business case for the best energy efficient and onsite renewable installations for your community project


OnGen for Community Energy

Increasing the number of community energy projects is vital for reaching net-zero. These projects are a great way to produce green energy, while investing in the local community. Community projects that are installed on the site of buildings help utilise space and can power community buildings directly.

A lack of funding and government support have been mentioned within the Community Energy State of Sector report 2021 ( as making these community projects difficult to get their feet off the ground.

Community energy organisations need a strong business case for deciding on the best type of energy improvements for community buildings to gain sufficient funds.

Coming up with the idea of a community project can be easy to decide on, but how do you start to achieve it?

From installing onsite renewables on community buildings to increasing the energy efficiency of a building, OnGen’s digital tools offer the guidance that you need to make an informed decision.
When funds are tight, choosing OnGen’s digital tools over expensive consultancies can help your community project have a flying start.

Our online services provide you with easy-to-understand information so that you can make the best decisions for your community project. Our experts, in our Managed Service Team, can even do the feasibility assessments for you.
