Do you have an idea for a climate-friendly way to heat your community?
Support is available for communities and groups of householders across Scotland to develop their ideas about collaborative, low-carbon heat projects to tackle climate change.
The Community Heat Development Programme, funded by the Scottish Government and delivered by Local Energy Scotland, is a learning programme to help communities and groups of householders to work together to heat homes and other buildings in their communities in a more environmentally friendly way. Expert advisors will work with successful applicants to test their ideas and develop feasible options to change the way buildings are heated.
The programme won’t pay to install energy efficiency measures or renewable technologies such as heat pumps. Successful applicants will also receive advice on the next steps, including any potential routes for further funding.
