Alongside Changeworks, the consortium is made up of:  

  • Energy Saving Trust 
  • The Energy Agency 
  • SCARF 

Local Energy Scotland is also supported by Ricardo Energy & Environment and QMPF. 

CARES supports communities across Scotland to engage with, participate in, and benefit from the energy transition to net zero emissions. 

CARES aims to support progress towards the Scottish Government’s targets of 2GW of community and locally owned energy by 2030 and decarbonising Scotland’s buildings. This is achieved through funding and support for community groups to install renewable energy generation.
