Start: 13 February 2020 5:30PM

End: 13 February 2020 7:30PM


The Rural Community Energy Fund (RCEF)

The RCEF is designed to help communities to develop their own local, clean and renewable sources of energy generation which benefit their locality and the wider environment.

- Phase I of the scheme offers up to £40,000 for a feasibility study.

- Phase II of the scheme offers up to £100,000 to cover further project development costs and gaining planning permission.

This event will provide a short introduction to applying for funds and there will be plenty of time to ask questions and network with other local community energy groups. There will also be a case study from an existing community energy project to show what is possible.


This meeting has been organised by the Solent LEP with the assistance of South West Energy Hub and New Forest District Council.
