Dr Sylvia Baron, Programme Manager at the GLA, announced a second round of the London Community Energy Fund at our annual conference last month.
The second round aims to benefit a broad range of projects, including energy efficiency and new technologies. It will also feature a ‘fast-track’ strand for solar, designed to help projects that want to take advantage of the remaining Feed in Tariffs.
Once this second round is officially launched, it is likely that the application process will only be open for around six weeks. New and existing community groups are encouraged to prepare their applications in advance, to ensure they are best placed to submit for grants of around £15,000.
