Next Generation Community Energy business Models for the North West, Yorkshire & the Humber and the North East.

Round 2 of the Next Generation grant scheme is open for applications. The aim of the programme is to enable community energy groups across England to innovate, test and develop new business models that deliver holistic and integrated post FiT local energy services. In Round 1 we had a total of 31 really excellent applications that have resulted in 5 Community Energy groups being supported to test and develop 5 very different CE models (see here). 

Compared to other regions of the country though we had fewer applications from the North West, Yorkshire & the Humber and the North East! Therefore if you’re thinking about developing an application or re-submitting an application that you submitted in Round 1, please do get in touch with us. We’d be very pleased to work with you and provide advice and feedback on your ideas or application ahead of the deadline (15th September).
