The Local Energy Assessment Fund

Seeding community energy action

Applications for LEAF are now closed.

Congratulations to all of the successful applicants. LEAF received a phenomenal amount of interest and we are looking forward to watching your projects over the next few weeks.

Commiserations to our unsuccessful applicants, competition was tough. We understand the benefit of feedback and will be looking to publish a number of hints, tips and useful pointers for applicants within the Latest News section of the website over the coming weeks. We appreciate that this result is disappointing, however please be assured that we will report our findings to DECC, and hope to generate further awareness for community grant schemes in the future.

For a regional breakdown of the winning community projects please visit the Mapping For Change interactive map, available here.

Kind regards,

The LEAF Program Team
