Founded by Oxfam GB, Just Energy is a not-for-profit social enterprise that works with low-income communities to maximise community revenues from medium sized renewable energy businesses (25-80 MW). The NGO will jointly develop projects with communities, helping to overcome these barriers by:
- Providing risk capital for feasibility studies and project development.
- Providing capacity building services and technical expertise to support project development.
- Managing an investment fund (in partnership with an established fund manager) to directly invest in community based renewable energy projects on behalf of a range of investors.
- Facilitating equitable partnerships between communities and private sector organisations and investors.
