Energy4All was formed in 2002 to expand the number of renewable energy co-operatives in the UK as an integral part of our transition to a low carbon economy.
Community-owned green energy is the corner stone of European renewable expertise and has worked successfully in the UK since 1996 through the award-winning Baywind Co-operative Limited.
As additional co-ops are established they too will take a share in this growing organisation.
Energy4All offers a highly successful combination of industry experience, community involvement, and business acumen providing a package of sector, admin, and financial services to Co-ops in return for an annual fee.
The Energy4All office is based in Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria with development staff working throughout the UK. Any group or individual land owner interested in community renewable energy projects should read through our unique Energysteps website first. This website will provide you with clear and practical information on the process of building a wind farm.
Energy4All was created due to daily enquiries received by Baywind Co-operative from people looking to replicate the success of Baywind, the UK's first community-owned wind farm. Baywind co-op has generated enough green electricity to power 1,300 homes a year whilst paying an attractive return to its 1,350 members (averaging 7% per annum), and supporting local initiatives, such as the Baywind Energy Conservation Trust. Owning a wind farm increases awareness of and involvement in renewable energy developments, maximises financial returns from local resources, and mobilises environmental concern. We look forward to developing many more social enterprises based on the ultimate People Power and the natural, free resource of the wind and rain.
