The Community Renewables Initiative (CRI) closed on 1 April 2007, completing its five year pilot programme. The CRI was successful in stimulating community action on renewable energy and delivering over 150 exemplar community projects across England.

Natural England hopes that the success of the pilot programme will enable local and regionally funded community renewables programmes to continue and devlope across the UK,building on the capacity established under the programme.
