RURAL COMMUNITY ENERGY FUND (RCEF) – WEBINARS

Community Heat, Power and Transport

Each webinar is aimed at community groups across the UK to inspire them to apply for the funding available.

RCEF is a £10 million programme delivered by the five Local Energy Hubs in the North East, North West, Midlands, South West and South East. Which supports rural communities across England to develop renewable energy projects, which provide economic and social benefits to their area.

Clean, renewable energy generation at community level is valuable both to the community and the wider environment. By reducing dependence on fossil-fuel-based energy generation, communities can secure future energy supply, gain protection from rising fuel costs and reduce the risk of fuel poverty. Income from renewable projects can be used to provide benefits to the community, create jobs and promote social cohesion.
