Community energy term involves different types of communities solving energy issues, including generation, energy use reduction, management and energy purchase, in many different ways. In this document we describe an approach to support the identification and creation of community energy initiatives in Milton Keynes. We discuss our initial design of an application that will facilitate the combining of multi-source urban information and will put advanced urban data analytics into the hands of communities. This tool will allow individuals and groups to learn about and reflect on energy use and future possibilities. To fully exploit this application, citizens must go through a learning process to understand the nature of the data, how to analise the provided datasets and how to interpret the results.
