Case Studies

Below are some examples of the work we do. Follow the links to download the full case study.


Warm Front Top Up

Loft Insulation

Warm Front was a grant aimed at vulnerable householders to allow them to invest in their heating systems and top up insulation. However, householders still had to make some contribution to the grant, and this was seen as a barrier to them installing insulation or updating heating systems. In 2010 NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Primary Care Trust started to provide funding for Community Energy Plus to address the client contributions towards these measures – the grant ‘top ups’.

Solar Communities

Lobster Hatchery


Community Energy Plus developed Solar Communities with some local solar PV installers in response to the opportunity offered by Feed-in Tariffs. In the first round, 22 buildings benefitted from a total of 177 kW of solar PV. You can read about some of these buildings on the Solar Communities Case Study page.
