The Scottish Government has announced additional funding of £5.5 million for renewables projects which contribute towards a green recovery following the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Communities will be able to bid for a share of £4.5 million through the Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES), which funds local renewable projects. A further £1 million is being made available through the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme (LCITP), a scheme which provides support for innovative energy projects such as heat networks and integrated energy systems.
