Title: Supporting Community Investment in Commercial Renewable Energy Schemes
Date: 2013- 2014
This project was commissioned to assist policymakers in supporting community investment in commercial renewable energy projects, and implemented in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh. Based on Scene's community energy database, a typology for business models currently facilitating shared ownership in the UK was developed. The project utilised both UK and international case studies to determine key benefits and constraints to community investment in commercial renewable energy schemes, providing recommendations for improvement of guidance and support channels in Scotland. This project was funded by ClimateXChange.
