The Welsh Government’s renewable energy support service

CY

Funding and Support

Development Officers 
A network of locally-based Development Officers is in place across Wales to help groups develop their projects and access funding. The Development Officers’ skills extend from the financial to the technical aspects of developments and they are experienced in developing community and commercially owned renewable energy projects in Wales. They will be happy to discuss your project with you, whatever stage it is at. 

Grants and loans 
Funding is available for all stages of project development from initial feasibility studies right through to capital funding towards construction costs. We can offer a mixture of grant and loan funding to suit the requirements of each project to ensure the best outcome.

Contractor frameworks
We will develop frameworks of contractors to help take forward renewable energy projects. Procurement for what are often specialist services can be complex and communities and SMEs are often time or resource constrained. By creating a list of suggested suppliers for areas such as legal work, project management and technical consultancy, we hope to make the process of appointing a supplier quicker and easier.
