Community organisations – including sports clubs, faith groups, charities, community interest companies and town or parish councils – have just over a month to apply for up to £140,000 of funding to get their local clean energy and heat projects off the ground.

Hull and East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership’s partner, The North East and Yorkshire Net Zero Hub, has opened the second round of its Community Energy Fund, a national programme designed to help communities develop energy services which benefit their local area – with applications being accepted until midnight on Sunday 5 May.

The Hub is also hosting a webinar on Wednesday 10 April at 10am to provide an overview of the programme and the funding available, lessons learned from the first round of funding and to provide an opportunity for interested groups to ask questions about the fund.

Eligible projects for funding include small-scale wind farms, rooftop solar partnerships, battery storage, rural heat networks and electric vehicle charging points, as well as energy efficiency, retrofit, and advice projects.

Funding is made up of a Stage 1 Feasibility Grant of up to £40k to establish the technical and financial viability of a project and/or a Stage 2 Development Grant of up to £100k for a more detailed investigation of the technology, for planning applications and to develop a business case.

More information is available here. You can sign up to the webinar here.
