Community energy is a way in which communities can own, manage and generate renewable energy systems, which brings benefits to the local community. Many successful community renewable energy projects have been developed across the UK, including Camden, however one of the main barriers to setting up new schemes is funding to pay for the measures.
The Camden Climate Fund provides grants of up to £15,000 for community energy groups to install and manage renewable energy systems that generate energy for the benefit of the local community in some form.
This could be for example, solar photovoltaic panels on a building such as a community centre or school. Find out more at the Camden website.
