Rural Community Energy Fund
DEFRA and the Department for Energy and Climate Change have launched the Rural Community Energy Fund, which has up to £15 million of grant funding available for community based renewable energy schemes.
Community groups can apply for a grant of up to £20,000 for a feasibility study and then apply for a loan of up to £130,000 to get the project started. It is intended that projects will then be able to attract private finance to pay for renewable energy kit and get projects up and running. Funding can be used to support rural projects across the renewable and low carbon energy spectrum including wind, solar, biomass, heat pumps, anaerobic digestion, gas Combined Heat and Power and hydro.
