Community Renewable Energy Insurance

Specialist insurance cover for renewable energy infrastructures

Naturesave has market-leading experience in providing insurance for community renewable energy projects across the UK.

With the UK looking off track to meet our fourth and fifth carbon budgets of the Climate Change Act, there has never been a more important time to increase our output of renewable energy.  Putting energy generation in the hands of communities has enormous potential and will certainly be a vital role in our future clean energy provision.  In addition to helping provide an urgent alternative to fossil fuels, community energy can also help aleviate fuel poverty which affects over 4 million housholds in the UK and is predicted to lead to contribute to over 100,000 deaths.

Join the campaign for the Local Electricity Bill to be made law. The Bill is aiming to create much faster deployment of community renewable energy across the UK. This will help the urgent need for us to becarbonise and also help alleviate fuel poverty. One of the biggest barriers to rolling out more community energy projects is the setup and running costs invloved in selling energy directly to lcoal people and businesses. This campaign is being coordinated by Power For People. Sign their peition and help unlock the potential of community energy. Sign the petition.
