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.

Projects that were successful in the Expression of Interest phase will be sent full application forms by their local Development Officer.
