Newly launched: Next Generation Programme

Everoze is excited to be a Delivery Partner for the newly launched Next Generation Programme.

The Next Generation programme is a £1m+ fund and expert support programme, created by Power to Change to pioneer innovative community-led energy projects and business models. Grants of up to £100,000 will be available to community businesses to develop decentralised, decarbonised, and democratised energy business models. Everoze’s role is to provide specialist technical and commercial advice.

Existing community energy businesses will be supported to develop into holistic energy businesses that provide benefits across their local community. Power to Change will award grants of up to £100,000 to 10 community energy businesses, alongside a support programme of research and analysis. See our Grants page for more detail on how to apply.

Power to Change is working closely with Community Energy England, to ensure that all materials and resources emerging from this programme are made available to the whole community energy sector, through a peer mentoring and sector learning scheme.

Next Generation will be delivered by a multi-disciplinary consortium made up of the Centre for Sustainable Energy (lead partner), Everoze Partners, Low Carbon Hub, Cooperatives UK, Cooperative Futures, Social and Sustainable Capital, and SFW Communications.
