More cash for low-carbon community building fund

Fund top-up is good news for community facilities

27 March 2017

The successful Thrive Renewables Community Benefit Programme, which funds low carbon improvements to community buildings - such as low energy lighting, insulation, new windows or doors, has been topped up.

"This is great news for community facilities who need energy efficient refurbishments," said CSE's Dan Stone. "But the fund has been popular, so we'd advise anyone interested to apply as soon as possible."

CSE administers this fund on behalf of Thrive Renewables (formerly Triodos Renewables), helping community buildings install LED lighting, insulation, draught-proofing, improved heating controls etc.

Funding is available for renewable energy installations in cases where all reasonable energy efficiency improvements to the building have already been made.

The fund is open to community buildings in the immediate vicinity of Thrive Renewables wind turbines and hydroelectric installations. A map of where these are is on this page.
