Unlock projects with the Community Energy Fund

Please see details below of a new Community Energy Fund for the Midlands. This funding is regional so organisations within Herefordshire are encouraged to apply to ensure this funding benefits the county.

The Community Energy Fund offers up to £100,000 to community groups for local energy projects.

Supported by a £10 million grant from the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, the fund aims to help communities develop clean energy initiatives such as wind farms, solar partnerships, heat networks, and electric vehicle charging, as well as increase community-owned low-carbon energy assets, reduce energy costs, attract private investment, and support local green jobs and volunteering.

Grants are available for feasibility studies (up to £40,000) and project development (up to £100,000).

Community organisations in the Midlands can apply, and get more info, on the Midlands Net Zero Hub website.
