South of Scotland Enterprise is working with Local Energy Scotland to highlight community shared ownership of renewables, the potential benefits, how it can work and what advice and assistance is available for communities in making decisions on whether or not to pursue shared ownership.

Shared ownership gives community groups the chance to make an investment in a commercially owned renewable energy project. This provides an opportunity for income as well as many other benefits. It’s the Scottish Government’s ambition that all renewable developments should consider, explore, and offer shared ownership opportunities.

At these sessions Local Energy Scotland will introduce you to shared ownership, how it works, and the support available from the Scottish Government’s Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES) that could help you explore opportunities in your area. 
SOSE’s Chair, Professor Russel Griggs will also talk about its ambition to support communities to maximise the benefit they get from future community benefit from onshore wind
This event is an Introduction to Shared ownership, so is suitable for those community organisations who are at the initial stages of understanding the sector.
To reserve a place or if you have question, please email Eilidh or Rob at by Thursday 14 March.

If attending, please provide details of any dietary requirements in your response.
