Esk Valley Community Energy Group

The Esk Valley Community Energy Group worked between 2006 and 2015 to reduce the community’s contribution to climate change by promoting energy conservation, energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.

The group held regular public meetings to give updates on current projects and to help people find out about new technologies. It also maintained a website offering a wealth of up to date advice and useful links.

After nearly nine years of activity, the group ceased to operate in 2015 but, due to strong links and overlapping aims, the group decided that its assets should be transferred to Moor Sustainable CIC, a Community Interest Company that operated from 2013 until 2022. That decision meant that the work of the EVCEG was continued over the wider area of the north east Yorkshire by Moor Sustainable for another seven years.

The following reports and articles were published on the EVCEG website:
