The Naturesave Trust provides start up 'seed corn' grants for community renewable energy projects.

The projects considered must be from community groups and companies who seek funding for specific renewable energy projects and not the general administrative costs of their respective organisations. They are unable to fund projects that are not wholly based within the UK, or from individuals.

Grants are made to projects which specifically address the promotion and implementation of sustainable development, environmental and / or conservationist improvement and or general ‘green’ issues.

There are no deadlines for applications, and no limits on the number of applications you can make. The Trustees aim to make a decision on application within six to eights weeks of receipt of a completed application form.
