£300k fund for Cornwall energy projects

Energyshare has announced the launch of energyfund Cornwall, a £300,000 grant fund for Cornish community energy projects.

The energyfund Cornwall team are looking for projects at all stages of their renewable journey, from early ideas to fully fledged plans, so Cornish communities can get involved and benefit their local areas.

Applicants will need to demonstrate that their local community supports their project, using a bespoke and unique online platform powered by the UK’s leading rewards-based crowdfunding platform, Crowdfunder.

Groups will be able to start the application process for these funds on 14 July by registering their project or idea at

Winners’ success will be celebrated in an awards event in November where leaders in the renewable energy sector will come together to recognise their achivements.

Energyshare programme manager Abbie Brook comments: “By releasing this funding we want to truly transform the opportunities local groups have to generate their own energy and directly benefit their communities – taking the county an important step closer to energy security in challenging times.

“We are working closely with Cornwall Council and our local partners on energyfund Cornwall. It’s a fantastic opportunity for Cornish communities to get their wind, solar, or other renewable technology projects to the next stage.”
