New funding available for community green energy projects
The Government’s Rural Community Energy Fund (RCEF) is inviting new community projects across England to apply for feasibility study grants of up to £40,000 to support renewable energy initiatives.
A second funding stage will award grants of up to £100,000 for business development and planning applications.
The total pot of £10 million is jointly funded by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The aim is to increase energy self-sufficiency in rural communities and boost jobs in green technology.
