The M&S Energy Community Energy Fund – which is now in its second year – enables more communities in Great Britain to generate renewable energy, and become environmentally and financially sustainable. The Fund has grants available to a range of community energy groups, from sports clubs to neighbourhood associations.
TSIP worked with the 26 grantee projects to understand the impact of their community energy installations. This included developing a survey for members of their local communities, analysing related data and producing a series of case studies outlining findings. TSIP also collected feedback from leaders about their experiences working with the Fund to help inform its future direction.
