Yes, a few months ago we applied for grant money from the Urban Community Energy Fund (UCEF), and we have been selected! This will be £13000, a great success. This money will take us a considerable way to develop our planned sites, and is very welcome. Remember that you can also become a member of Liverpool Community Renewables and invest in our pioneer share offer.
Since the launch of UCEF there have been 18 successful applicants. If you are part of a urban community energy group, it is worth checking out if your group might be eligible and then apply. Details on eligibility and also how to apply can be found over at the website of the Centre for Sustainable Energy. We were told that CSE are planning to publish who won this award and also put the locations of these projects on a map. We will keep you posted.
