Naturesave is the market leader in community renewable energy insurance. We also provide grant funding and investments for community renewable energy groups.
Community renewable energy is a process by which communities come together to take control of their energy needs. There are multiple benefits in doing this one of which is to drive the shift towards low carbon solutions such as solar, wind, hydro and biomass. Further benefits include securing an income for the community, reducing energy costs, tackling fuel poverty and providing local employment.
