An opportunity to get help from £10 million local energy fund
The government has announced a £10 million boost for local community energy projects, and a £20 million fund to the existing public sector energy efficiency loan scheme which will give extra confidence to businesses in the renewable sector.
The new £10 million local energy assessment fund (LEAF) will be run as a competition with the chance for around 200 community organisations to tackle energy efficiency and renewable energy generation.
In addition to the announced funds, the government has also set up a community energy group to look at how local energy opportunities can be made more accessible for local communities across Britain.
If you want to find out more about the programme and the methods of applying for it please refer to the Energy saving Trust website.
