Local Energy Scotland are here to help you investigate your renewable energy idea for your community building.

Through CARES we can provide support and funding to help secure renewable energy installations for eligible applicants currently looking to take advantage of the Feed in Tariff (FIT) and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). 

You can read our guidance note here.

You can find our funding applications here. 

  • The enablement grant could help you with preparatory work towards installing renewable energy technologies
  • The innovation grant could help if you to do something that involves, for example, smart controls, battery storage or a local energy system. 

Key opportunities: 

  • Make the most of the FIT while it's available to new applicants - especially Solar PV installations.
  • Heat projects, where the building is off the gas grid, or unable to use the gas grid.
  • Innovative projects
