Community Support Service

Community Support Service

 

Devon County Council (DCC) contracted DARE to provide a Community Energy Support Service from November 2016 until March 2017. The project aimed to assist established and emerging community energy organisations in Devon to achieve their community-owned renewable energy ambitions. These types of schemes 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.

Bespoke Support

 

Over the project term, DARE  provided a wide range of support requests, free of charge. This could include ‘hands on’ assistance in delivering a community project, as well as providing advice and expertise. Our support was bespoke to the individual organisations requesting assistance but could include:

 

  • organising community engagement activity, inc events
  • organising and 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
  • preparing outline pre-feasibility studies
  • developing and circulating communication material
  • accessing legal support
  • tendering

Please contact us if you have any questions or queries relating to any of our services.
