Welcome to your latest CARES bulletin


The Scottish Government has awarded more than £2.6million to 74 organisations in the latest funding round of its Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES).

The installation of renewable energy technologies in these community buildings will not only reduce carbon emissions in Scotland’s transition to net zero, but will also reduce the buildings’ operating costs, allowing financial savings to be reinvested back into the communities that the organisations serve.

Building on this success, a new programme of CARES funding opens today (Wednesday 11 May). The Let’s Do Net Zero Community Buildings Fund is a rolling programme of funding offering support to community organisations to decarbonise their buildings and reduce energy bills.
