M&S Energy Community Energy Fund

Win a share of £300,000 for your renewable energy project

We’re open for applications

The M&S Energy Community Energy Fund is back with £300,000 to support renewable energy projects and technologies across the UK. Last time around we distributed the money to inspiring organisations, shortlisted from hundreds of entries, that brought the benefits of energy initiatives to their communities. In the end almost 80,000 votes were cast and 25 projects received funding, including the seven judges’ prize winners. Could it be you this year?

Help's at hand

Applications for funding are now open until noon on 3 July and we’re on hand to help you every step of the way. You will need to supply all the information about you and your organisation in the online application, and our downloadable guide has everything you need to know to make it perfect.
