Bristol Energy Network have been working with Bristol City Council and Quartet Community Foundation to set up and run the Bristol Community Energy Fund. There have been 3 rounds of the fund so far and we have carried out an evaluation of how well it has been working. The report headlines are that:

  • collaborations between new (non-energy) groups and more experienced BEN members worked well
  • the fund was successful in reaching areas with higher levels of deprivation
  • the application process was clear and support offered was helpful
  • reporting and data collection could be more streamlined
  • events to share experiences would be welcome

The fund has just re-opened and we are now offering support to applicants to develop ideas and complete their application forms. There will be a funding workshop on Jan 8th 2018 – watch this space for more details!

The fund is open for project up to £10,000 in value, the deadline for applications is 15 January 2018
