As a community energy cooperative we’re committed to recycling our profits into community action. That’s why we’ve set up the Megawatt Community Energy Fund to support community action on climate change and making energy more affordable by addressing fuel poverty.
Interested in finding out more? Come along to our workshops on Wednesday 6 September from 2-4pm or 6-8pm at
St Pauls Family and Learning Centre in Bristol.

Our community energy fund fund will support projects that aim to:
- Raise awareness of climate change, its solutions and how to reduce its impact
- Reduce fossil fuel consumption of individuals, organisations and communities either directly through energy measures, or indirectly through the more efficient use of resources. Projects do not have to be energy projects but must have clear aims to reduce carbon in the atmosphere.
- Reduce fuel poverty, to ensure everyone can access and afford the energy they need.
- Develop social, arts, cultural or sports activity that encourages or celebrates sustainability.
Applicants should live or work in our operational area: Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Sedgemoor District (Somerset).
More information and the guidelines can be found via the Quartet Community Foundation website.
Our partner, Bristol Energy Network, is running a series of workshops to help you to learn about the Megawatt Community Energy Fund, its aims, funding criteria, and to talk through ideas you may have for projects
