Community Support Service

 

Devon County Council (DCC) has contracted DARE to provide a Community Energy Support Service from November 2016 until March 2017. DARE and DCC value community energy schemes as they keep money in the Devon economy, develop local skills, reinvigorate communities by bringing people together with a common purpose and reduce greenhouse gas emissions through low carbon energy production.

 

DARE are able to provide a wide range of support requested by established and emerging community energy organisations in Devon to help them achieve their community-owned renewable energy ambitions.

 

This is to include ‘hands on’ assistance in delivering communities’ projects, as well as providing advice and expertise.

 

  • Organising community engagement activity, including events 
  • Running public meetings
  • Technical assistance on renewable energy issues
  • Financial modelling and business planning
  • Finding and applying for funding sources
  • Negotiating with land and building owners
  • Helping the active community leaders of these projects to arrange meeting agendas, venues and take minutes
  • Preparing outline pre-feasibility studies
  • Developing and circulating communication material
  • Accessing legal support
  • Tendering
  • Running community share offers

 If you need support with your community energy project please contact us to access this free, impartial, independent support service.
