The Flex Community is a virtual community for all actors in the electricity sector seeking consumer-based democratisation of energy management as part of the solution for the energy transition.
This is possible thanks to flexible consumption, i.e. the possibility to easily change the way we consume without compromising our needs.
Moreover, by making consumption more flexible we can increase energy efficiency, reduce energy bills and help the electricity system to become 100% renewable and more sustainable. At the same time, we promote the development of a democratic circular economy and make the most of the planet's existing resources.
From the Flex Community, we help consumers to make the best energy decisions to be less dependent on gas, reduce their electricity bills, be self-sufficient and be part of a community of consumers who actively collaborate for a better planet.
Bath and West Community Energy (BWCE) is a not for profit, Community Benefit Society, operating and growing successfully since 2010.

With a focus is on developing Clean local energy, community owned for the common good in Bath, UK and surrounding areas.
Flex Community is an exciting and innovative trial exploring 'flexible' ways to most efficiently and sustainably use renewable energy to meet household electricity demand.
