DECC has published the Government Response to the consultation on support for community energy projects under the Feed in Tariff (FITs) scheme.

A copy of the document can be viewed on the DECC website. Two key points, which may be of particular interest to community buildings.  Firstly charities are to be included in the community energy project definition.

Secondly the Government has agreed to provide further guidance explaining when public grants and FiTs can be used together, but will not make any changes to allow FiT and public grants for community projects because they do not believe that community projects have additional costs.
