Welcome To Harbury Energy Initiative

Harbury Energy Initiative is a village volunteer-run group that aims to save energy, to reduce household costs and to cut carbon within our community. Much of our work to date has focused on our community buildings but we have also helped with reducing the cost of installation of photovoltaic panels on many roofs and have stimulated a number of households to insulate their walls and carry out other improvements to cut carbon. There is still much to do.


E-Car Club

In October 2014 we were
successful in gaining a grant of £18,000 from the Carplus Car Club Challenge, part of the Department for Transport’s Developing Car Clubs in England programme, to create an electric car club in Harbury with the dynamic
start-up company E-Car Club.

Part of our plan had always been to make the cars work for the community in socially
beneficial ways, as well as for the environment. Eight volunteer drivers and 5 volunteer coordinators now provide a clean, green transport option for those in need physically or financially..


Community Projects

In 2012 Harbury Energy Initiative won £45,000 from the government Local Energy Assessment Fund programme. With this grant we commissioned reports on how to save energy for the school, library, rugby club and church and also insulated the library walls with an internal dry lining, a major undertaking.
