The Green Economy Fund, which is administered by Energy Saving Trust on behalf of SP Energy Networks, aims to invest in Scotland’s green economy.

This £20 million fund helps communities invest in and benefit from low carbon heating and transport technology, and support the Scottish Government’s ambitious energy strategy.

What is the Green Economy Fund looking to achieve?

  • To contribute to the knowledge and infrastructure needed to address the changes in heating and transport expected over the next decade.
  • To work with specific communities within SP Energy Networks’ operational area in Scotland supporting, in particular, rural and urban areas which suffer from fuel poverty.
  • To provide access to funding for projects that may ordinarily struggle to obtain financial support.
  • To stimulate economic activity and create jobs in Scotland.
  • To support the Scottish Government’s ambitious energy strategy and the UK’s drive to a low-carbon economy.
