Community Ownership of Commercial Energy Projects

This project, funded by ClimateXChange for the Scottish Government, is about the opportunities for communities to invest in commercial energy projects.  

Working alongside government, industry and practitioners, it explores the funding and support mechanisms available to communities and the means through which developers can engage with each other.  It identifies a significant number of hurdles, and with a comparative analysis of community investment in a range of countries from around the world, as well as case studies from Scotland, develops a series of recommendations for the Scottish Government.  The final report will be available shortly.
