We have some great community energy news
energyshare are partnering with M&S Energy to run their first ever Community Energy Fund, a competition to distribute £400,000 in grants to renewable energy projects that benefit the community.
If you’re a not for profit organisation that wants to use renewable energy to provide community benefits, this is your chance to secure funding! Whether you’re a community energy group, a sports club or simply an organisation that wants to have a positive impact on the environment, we want to hear from you.
There are three types of capital funding available to apply for:
1. A national funding pot for a project that require a maximum of £40,000.
2. A national funding pot for a project that require a maximum of £20,000.
3. Regional funding pots for projects that require a maximum of £12,500.
We also have a minimum funding of £15,000 which will be split between the most inspiring and innovative projects.
Applications close on 29th July 2015 so to take part, simply complete the M&S Energy online application.
It’s easier to take part than you might think, so have a look at some projects from energyfund Cornwall, a similar project we ran last year, and see how easy it is.
We look forward to receiving your application.
If we at ESVIPS can help support your project with help, information plesae let us know.
