The M&S Energy Community Energy Fund is back for 2016‏

m n s energy

The M&S Energy Community Energy Fund is back for 2016!

We’re pleased to announce that the M&S Energy Community Energy Fund is returning with £350,000 to distribute to community groups across the UK this summer.

It’s part of the continued commitment from M&S Energy to enable more communities in the UK to generate renewable energy and become environmentally and financially sustainable.

Over 136 projects entered in the competition last year, generating over 52,000 votes in a close-run campaign, resulting in 21 project winners from around Great Britain benefiting from our fund.

Ed Davey, the former Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, joined River Cottage founder Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and a panel of experts to decide on the 5 additional judges’ discretion prizes.

There’s £12,500 up for grabs in each M&S region across Great Britain to use towards the installation of a renewable technology and generate energy for your community building.

Whether you’re a community energy group, a sports club or simply an organisation that wants to have a positive impact on the environment, we want to hear from you.

What do I need to do to apply?
Applications open online next week, and you have until 31st May 2016 to tell us all about your project to be in with a chance to win funding.
A tip to support your application preparation:

  1. Make sure Planning Permission or Permitted Development Rights has been approved prior to application
  2. You will need to submit cost quotes from your installer so have this document ready to upload
