Community Energy in Wales

What they want to help:

The problems of climate change, and rising fuel and energy costs can be partly tackled using renewable energy systems. Wales has a wealth of natural resources with potential for clean, renewable energy generation. Communities that choose to produce their own energy can often generate a surplus, resulting in savings and income which can then be invested into community development projects.


What they will support:

They understand that different technologies have different benefits – communities need to be sure which is most appropriate and effective solution for them. They will therefore provide small amounts of funding for early-stages, feasibility studies, technical assistance etc. for renewable energy projects benefiting communities in Wales. The average grant available under this programme is £5-10k.
