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.

Helping Communities Towards Net Zero

Future Isle of Wight has an ambitious goal: To preserve the ecology and environment of our beautiful island for future generations, whilst improving the everyday lives of the people who live and work here.

Preserving the Environment By Improving How We Live

We’re a community interest company helping local businesses, community groups, and residents reduce their costs and carbon footprints.

Our work covers the built environment, transport, food, water and waste management.

  • We use regenerative, sustainable, and environmentally aware strategies and technologies.
  • We help signpost Islanders towards organisations who can actively reduce their utility costs and CO2 emissions.
  • We offer education and support to help individuals and businesses achieve Net Zero by 2040.
  • Smart Island Live, our future technology expo, features international manufacturers and Innovate UK masterclasses.

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 use advanced remote sensing technology & expert surveyors to assess potential solar PV installations.


With help from retrofit specialists, we’re reducing fuel poverty by improving home heating through government grants.


Our surveys pinpoint where homeowners can reduce fuel bills with grant-funded insulation installed by experts.

Electric Vehicles

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

Grant Funding

We can assist homeowners & local businesses in applying for funding for a wide range of energy themed grants.

Commercial Projects

We can help industrial & commercial building owners cut significant costs on heating & ventilation bills.

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.
