Welcome to Future Isle of Wight

We’re a community interest company on a mission to improve the environment and quality of life on the Isle of Wight.

Live Green, Live Better

Future Isle of Wight has a bold vision: We want to preserve the ecology and environment of our beautiful island for future generations, whilst at the same time improving the lives of the people who live and work here.

It’s a pretty ambitious goal, and we can’t wait to get started!

Preserving the Environment By Improving How We Live…

Our planet is facing an environmental crisis. From unpredictable weather and pollution, to habitat destruction and shortages of food and water.

It can all feel a little overwhelming at times, and it’s difficult to know where to start.

Future Isle of Wight’s focus is set squarely on the tiny part of the world that we call home, a place where we believe we can make a difference.

We’re Islanders with backgrounds in the built environment, communications and IT, so we know that environmentally friendly choices need to be a good fit for our unique location, but we also know that if we’re going to succeed, our projects need to help Island residents and local businesses to save money and thrive.

Our Key Themes

In our first phase, Future Isle of Wight will focus on reducing fuel poverty by helping Island residents to heat and insulate their homes and businesses more efficiently, saving money and reducing CO2.

Solar PV

We’re partnered with Solar Sim, who use advanced remote sensing technology to discover your building’s solar potential.

Heating

We’re reducing fuel poverty and cutting CO2 by improving home heating systems using government heating grants.

Insulation

Our surveys show areas where home owners can save on their yearly fuel bills using grant funded insulation.

Electric Vehicles

Our team includes dedicated EV specialists, and we have a number of exciting projects nearing completion.

Grant Funding

We can assist home owners and local businesses in applying for funding for a wide range of energy themed grants.

Commercial Projects

We can help industrial and commercial building owners save huge amounts of money on heating and ventilation.

What You Should Know About Us

We’re a Community Interest Company

That means we aren’t a charity, but our objectives must benefit the local community. It also means that we’re not aligned with a political party and all of our profits and capital growth need to be used to benefit the Isle of Wight.

We’re Isle of Wight Focused

We live on the Isle of Wight, and we’re committed to making sure that the beautiful landscapes that we love so much are preserved for future generations.

We also understand the unique challenges that Islanders face, and that many of the solutions that work across the water aren’t always a good fit for our rural communities.

We Believe in Practical, Common Sense Solutions

We span a diverse range of industries and backgrounds, including the built environment, communications, smart technology, IT and digital media.

We’re results driven, motivated and practical, and we understand the challenges of living and doing business on the Isle of Wight.
