  • Thrive Renewables Community Benefit Programme

    Created: 16/07/2019

    A new round of grant funding to be used for energy efficiency upgrades to community buildings, like village halls and community centres has opened.

    The Thrive Renewables Community Benefit Programme is only open to community buildings in the immediate vicinity of a renewable energy project in which Thrive Renewables is invested (eligible postcodes can be found here). There are seven Thrive sites located in Scotland:

    • Drumduff wind farm just outside Edinburgh.
    • Clayfords wind farm near Strichen in Aberdeenshire.
    • Beochlich hydro electric site on the south east side of Loch Awe in Argyll.
    • Gevens wind farm in Fife.
    • Sigurd wind farm on Burgar Hill, Orkney Mainland.
    • Brotherton wind farm near Johnshaven in Aberdeenshire
    • Dunfermline wind farm at the Pitreavie Business Park in Dunfermline

    Grants of up to £4,000 are available to cover carbon saving improvements such as insulation, draught-proofing, LED lighting or improved heating controls, which reduce a building’s carbon footprint.

    CSE are administering the programme on behalf of Thrive Renewables. More information about the community benefit programme and how to apply is available here.

    Next deadline: Saturday 31 August 2019.
