The Community Generation Fund was a national fund created to provide a catalyst for the widespread development of community-owned renewable energy infrastructure.
Climate change is a global challenge and is at the centre of public and private sector agendas. Transition to a low-carbon economy is essential from an environmental, economic and social imperative.
Renewable energy investment will play a fundamental role in this transition but it requires a motivating force behind it. We see communities across the UK as critical change agents. Our vision is for widespread community-led renewable energy projects around which communities will congregate, form collaborations and work together.
The Fund was designed to assist communities seeking to develop renewable energy generation infrastructure which will create renewable energy, social engagement and a long term income source to be recycled by the community into relevant social impact initiatives.
This fund is now closed
