Could your group get a share of a £100,000 fund from the Department for Energy and Climate Change’s new community energy competition?

Community groups across England can apply for the funding to develop innovative energy-saving ideas that could help slash energy bills - anything from hosting an energy advice stall in your local shopping centre, to crowd-funding solar panels for your local church or running a ‘buddy’ programme to help vulnerable households get to grips with their energy bills, switch energy suppliers and save money.

Applications close on 10 February 2015 and successful groups need to deliver their idea by the end of March 2015, so you’ll have to be quick. If you do apply, be sure to tell us about the ideas you submitted on the Big Energy Race blog. Your team will earn bonus points taking you closer to being crowned the Big Energy Race Champions.
