Comhairle renews commitment to energy support

Posted on

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar (CnES, the Western Isles Council) is continuing its funding of the Outer Hebrides Community Energy Support Service, delivered by Community Energy Scotland.

That means the CES team in the Western Isles will carry on its advice work for local groups up to March 2018. Rona Mackay, Kathleen MacDonald and Kirsten Macdonald are on hand to help you with:

  • Existing micro-renewables
  • Revenue-generating projects
  • Bringing groups together for knowledge-sharing
  • Responding to consultations
  • Innovative energy developments

Grid constraints are a major issue facing groups in the Western Isles.  CES can support groups through the grid application process for a space on the potential interconnector, and is also leading work on a Xero Energy grid study – funded by CnES, Highlands & Islands Enterprise and the Western Isles Development Trust.  Once that's complete, CES will guide community groups through all the connection options it identifies.

Renewable energy project support is available to community groups across the Western Isles


On behalf of our members in the Outer Hebrides, we'd like to thank CnES for backing the service.
