New funding aims to help community buildings reduce emissions

 

A new round of the Scottish Government’s Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES) has been launched

A fund has been launched to help community buildings reduce their emissions.

A new round of the Scottish Government’s Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES) opened today (Friday 30 July).

CARES is offering grant funding, advice and support to community organisations that want to decarbonise their community buildings by installing low carbon or renewable technologies, such as heat pumps or solar panels.

CARES funding is available for many types of community building, including:

  • community cafes
  • community hubs
  • faith buildings
  • public halls
  • community halls and community centres.

CARES has already supported many community organisations throughout Scotland to successfully install renewable technologies in their community buildings. For example, Aboyne and Mid-Deeside Community Shed installed four air source heat pumps to provide space heating at its community shed.

Applicants must be constituted non-profit distributing community organisations, including organisations with charitable status, that are established and operating across a geographically defined community (‘local community organisations’) or faith groups.
