Bristol Energy Network provided support to Bristol Energy Cooperative’s Megawatt Community Energy Fund. We helped to promote the fund and support groups to apply.
Megawatt Community Energy Fund is available for community action on reducing the amount of carbon in our atmosphere, and/or making energy more affordable e.g. through focused fuel poverty initiatives. Applicants should live or work in our operational area: Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Sedgemoor District (Somerset).
The first round of Bristol Energy Cooperative’s Megawatt Community Energy Fund closed in September 2017. It received over 30 applications, with up to £50,000 available. The successful projects were selected by a member vote and panel, and can be viewed at the link below.
It is anticipated that there will be annual rounds of the fund, launching in the summer.
