Our Story


About Scene

We are a Social Enterprise focused on strengthening communities through consultancy, research and development of ICT products. We work across the renewable energy and energy access sectors.

Founded in Edinburgh in 2011, we have built a reputation as one of Scotland’s foremost community energy organisations, and have an emerging standing as action researchers and product developers in energy access. 

Scene is represented in Edinburgh, London and India - with projects ongoing in countries around the world. To find out more about our ongoing work and past projects, take a look at the case studies our Consulting and Research pages.

Since we began our core mandate has been to address the gap between energy generation and citizens.  We set out to reduce the size of this gap, by helping non-specialists develop their own renewable energy solutions. We now work across a broader range of sectors, but to the same ends - to bring power and capability closer to home.

What our clients and partners say about us:

“Having worked on several renewable energy projects with Vijay Bhopal, Jelte Harnmeijer and the team at Scene Consulting, I found that they were instrumental in achieving a successful outcome and were a pleasure to deal with. Their range of expertise is ideal for community renewable energy. Highly recommended.”   -  Dominic Dunnett, MBM Commercial LLP

"A huge amount of work is required in a renewable energy project, Scene were there to offer technical knowledge and expertise which we would otherwise not have had in our group."   -  Matt Roy, Greener Leith

Vijay and the team at Scene Consulting have been fantastic in their support of our project. Professional, knowledgeable and attention to detail. Exactly what we required to get the job done.’  -  Stuart McKay, Hartwood Village Community Group

Undertaking such a large scale project on behalf of our community was very daunting but at every stage both Scene and MBM Legal were available to ease any concerns.  Working together they made the whole process much easier than we could have hoped.  Always approachable, they took the initiative and delivered the project on time and on budget.  We look forward to working with them again on future projects.’    -  Lesmahagow Development Trust

'Scene's expertise helped us to organise this complicated joint venture project for the benefit of the community group and the project overall'' - Andrew Stewart, Stewart Energy Ltd.
