We're back for 2017
The M&S Energy Community Energy Fund is back, with £300,000 to support renewable energy projects and technologies across the UK. Last time around we distributed the money to inspiring organisations, shortlisted from hundreds of entries, that brought the benefits of energy initiatives to their communities. In the end almost 80,000 votes were cast and 25 projects received funding, including the seven judges’ prize winners. Could it be you this year?
Applications for funding open on Monday 22 May, but you can get ahead with yours by downloading our application guide here. Crowdfunding is on offer again this year, so you can choose to raise additional funds whilst collecting votes for your project. Last year community groups crowdfunded an amazing £28,798 in donations for their renewable energy projects! You will need to supply all the information about you and your organisation in the online application when we open for entries. So get ahead with the guide and pull together everything you need into one place now.
