CARES development funding
CARES development loans and/or grant funding of up to £150,000 are available to support renewable energy projects for communities and eligible organisations in Scotland. Loans can include a write-off facility that allows development risk to be mitigated.
Development funding supports development activities: for example, feasibility studies, design, and consenting of new renewable or innovation projects. Urban and rural communities are encouraged to apply.
How to apply
