Local communities in Bristol could receive funds to help get their green cheap energy projects up and running.
According to The Breeze, the Bristol Community Energy Catalyst Fund will invest up to £15,000 in each initiative and will treat each one as an 'open source', meaning the findings of any market research will be made available to other community organisations.
Councillor Neil Harrison, assistant cabinet minister for sustainability, told the news source that Bristol has set ambitious targets to cut cheap gas and electricity waste by 40 per cent in the next nine years.
"We know that communities across the city want to reduce their energy costs and develop their own renewable energy, but they need help to get their projects off the ground," he said.
"Whether it's solar panels, biomass boilers or an energy saving programme, the Catalyst Fund can help them get through the key business development hurdles such as feasibility and legal documentation."
