October 2014 – March 2016

The Devon Community Energy Accelerator project provided funding, events and support for Devon based community energy groups, to enable them to develop their renewable energy installations. This project worked in unison with the national Community Energy Accelerator project, funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.

Under this project we:

  • awarded £63,000 of funding to 18 organisations
  • ran 13 events, with 343 attendees
  • provided specific tailored support to groups
  • developed a series of checklists

This is an excellent example of a local authority supporting the community energy sector to develop and grow, which could be replicated in other areas.
