Interested in understanding how the Bristol City Leap Community Energy Fund could benefit your community group? We’re hosting a workshop with our partners at Vattenfall to help you explore options and how to apply.

The Bristol City Leap Community Energy Fund has been designed to stimulate innovation and support community projects that accelerate decarbonisation in our city, nurturing a diverse range of projects rooted in local communities.

We can help local community groups identify and leverage funding, whether that’s by exploring additional revenue streams through community-led ownership of heat network assets, generating low carbon electricity from community buildings or funding community connections to the heat network.

The workshop will provide the opportunity to learn about the heat network specifically, through Bristol City Leap’s heat network delivery partner, Vattenfall.
