Other County-wide Climate Emergency Groups


Community Energy Groups

Shropshire and Telford Community Energy (STCE) STCE is being set up as a Community Benefit Society to develop and own community energy projects in Shropshire and Telford. One of the first projects that STCE are looking at, is the Twemlows Solar Farm near Whitchurch.  This 10MW scheme was built in 2015 using private finance but is now looking for a new home in the community sector.

Pomona Solar Co-operative harnessing the power of the sun for the benefit of people in Herefordshire.

Big Solar Co-opa new approach to subsidy-free community solar from the ground up, supported by Sharenergy. We’re working with community solar groups across the UK on an approach which:

  • Makes solar viable on a huge range of sites even in the absence of Feed-in Tariffs (FiTs)
  • Empowers and supports volunteers to work together to get it built
  • Works towards the alleviation of climate change through large-scale, grassroots community action

Bath & West Community EnergyBWCE is a not for profit community benefit society, owned and run by our members for the benefit of the community. Our vision is for a local area able to supply decreasing local energy demand with increasing generation from renewable energy, driven by collective action and community ownership. Our focus has been on developing clean local energy, community-owned for the common good.

CREW EnergyCREW Energy is a not-for-profit cooperative made up of south-west Londoners who care about making this corner of London a more resilient and sustainable community. By helping community groups and individuals across the boroughs of Wandsworth, Merton and Lambeth access low-carbon solutions, our volunteers are helping to reduce the carbon emissions of the capital.

SELCE (South East London Community Energy Ltd) Since 2010, community groups all over the country have started to take a different approach when it comes  generating energy. The Community Energy England website reveals the huge benefits that these projects that not only generate their own energy but control how it is used as well. To accelerate the transition to a sustainable future in SE London, we formed Selce as a co-operative for the benefit of the community.

Land and Biodiversity

Middle Marches Community Land Trust We are a community-led Trust based in the Middle Marches committed to the promotion and development of sustainable and environmentally responsible agriculture that supports a thriving natural world. Our Vision is to help create an ecologically healthy and sustainable countryside in the hills of the Middle Marches to inspire both residents and visitors. For more detail, do take a look at The Hub

The Shropshire Hills contain two large upland nature reserves, the Long Mynd, owned and managed by the National Trust and the Stiperstones, owned and managed by Natural England. The two organisations decided together that there was a good opportunity to establish a project to create linkages between the two sites which, together with improved management, would help make them bigger, better and joined – key aspirations for improving England’s network of protected sites. The project is called ‘Stepping Stones’ (see below).

Stepping Stones Project  Stepping Stones is a National Trust-led programme of landscape-scale environmental projects in the Shropshire Hills. Their 50-year vision is for natural habitats in the Shropshire Hills to be restored, healthy and connected, and for the people who live, work and play in this remarkable area to understand and support our efforts.

Slow the Flow Shropshire Wildlife Trust project: Natural flood management to reduce the downstream maximum water height of a flood (the flood peak) or to delay the arrival of the flood peak downstream, increasing the time available to prepare for floods. The myriad Slow the Flow items work together, helping to reduce flow rate in the valley, under storm events. This is achieved by restricting the progress of water through a catchment in 3 ways:

  1. Increasing soil infiltration and allowing water to soak away.
  2. Storing water by using natural features such as ponds, ditches or low lying land or by creating new ponds and areas to store water.
  3. Slowing water by increasing resistance to flow. For example, by planting trees on the floodplain or constructing “leaky dams” in channels.

Marches Meadow Group A small, enthusiastic group of local smallholders living in the Stiperstones and Cordon Hill area of the Welsh Marches, who are interested in the management and conservation of wildflower rich hay meadows.

Herefordshire Meadows An informal network of meadow owners managing and conserving flower rich grassland … 61 Herefordshire Meadows members are now supported by Natural England as a Facilitation Fund Group. We work collaboratively across the whole of the Herefordshire landscape holding events and discussions on how to manage, create and restore meadows to benefit wildlife, soil and water quality, historic features, natural flood management and livestock farming businesses.
