New Support Available for Community-Owned Renewable Projects in the East Midlands

Marches Energy Agency has recently secured funding to support communities seeking to set up community-owned renewable projects in the East Midlands.

During Spring 2018 we will be:

  • Holding a one day event for community groups, with speakers from a range of organisations with expertise in this area and time to meet others doing similar things. The emphasis will be on helping communities navigate and overcome barriers created by recent policy and funding changes that affect these sort of projects.
  • Organising study tours to inspiring existing community-owned renewable projects.
  • Providing some 121-tailored follow up support for a limited number of groups to help them get to the next stage in their project.

Caroline Harmon of Marches Energy Agency said:

'We are keen to hear from groups who would like take part in the training and study tours and be considered for 121 follow up support. We're especially keen to get input from those who would like to attend the one day event on what should be covered.'

MEA would like to hear from groups in or near the East Midlands who have a community-owned renewable already up and running and could inspire those attending the event or provide a location for an inspiring study tour.
