Local renewable energy generation

We want to encourage people in Wales to take control of their own energy needs.

Our vision is to see all communities and businesses using locally generated electricity and heat, from a range of renewable installations, to supply local demand and reduce our dependence on central generation.  

Our Local Energy Service provides support and funding to social enterprises and SMEs to develop renewable energy projects.

The service offers access to:

  • Grant aid for early project development
  • Loans for development and construction
  • Free advice and guidance by locally based Development Officers
  • Online resources to help progress through the steps of a project
  • A Partnership Portal to bring together communities, landowners, investors and developers to work together on projects
