Devon County Council’s new Community Energy Fund has been set up to support the recovery of Devon’s economy post-pandemic.
The key objective of this fund is to support, develop and fund a small number of high-quality Community Energy initiatives that will help to advance and strengthen the Community Energy sector in Devon.
Grants up to £25,000 are available for voluntary, community and public-sector organisations across Devon for:
- skills and training to increase capacity in the community energy sector
- preparatory work for applications to larger strategic funds that have a community energy focus, for example, the Rural Community Energy Fund
- Community Retrofit Accredited Training and other accredited training to benefit the community energy sector
- set-up costs for two new Community Energy Companies in Devon
You can find out more and apply here by Monday 8 November 2021.
