Community Energy Fund


Applications for Islington Community Energy Fund Round Three

Round Three of the Islington Community Energy Fund will launch on Tuesday 28 August 2018. Round Three will allow organisations that submitted feasibility studies for Round One to bid for capital projects, as well as general capital projects.

The Community Energy Fund aims to help community groups develop and deliver energy projects which will benefit Islington residents. Islington Council wants to find ways to spread the word about energy efficiency to residents and to encourage and support them to use less energy.

Any constituted groups with charitable aims across Islington who would like to carry out an energy-related project can apply for funding.

Projects can be anything that would reduce the amount of energy used, including reducing the carbon footprint of a building. We are especially looking for innovative projects. For example, using battery storage technology to store the energy you’ve generated with solar panels. If you are interested in a more innovative scheme, please contact us to discuss.

Funds are available through two streams:

  • Stream 2a allows organisations with energy projects at an advanced stage of development to submit bids
  • Stream 2b will be available to projects funded through Stream 1 in Rounds 1 and 2
