Community Energy Scotland leads Scotland's first Community Energy Network. Its aim is to build confidence, resilience and wealth at community level throughout Scotland through sustainable energy development. To date it has provided funding and support for over 500 community energy projects including various renewable energy technologies. It is currently supporting around 30 communities who are developing their own community wind and hydro schemes to bring significant revenue into their communities and provide a long term future. They also supported the Isle of Gigha islands who now receive around £100,000 annually from their community-owned wind turbines and have used these funds to provide new housing and workshops on the island. Community Energy Scotland also provided significant funding for the project which saw the electrification of the Isle of Eigg where islanders were able to benefit from 24-hour electricty supply for the first time in the island's history.
