Securing finance for a Renewable Energy (RE) project can be very challenging and community groups are perceived as inherently high risk. This perception of high risk is mainly due to the community energy barriers that are listed below; for example: lack of technical experience, inability to access finance, complicated planning and grid access process, complicated paperwork for applications etc. This report will review the existing financing options available in each of the partner region that are applicable to communities, including investment subsidies, low interest loans, loans from green banks or funds and tax instruments, such as investment tax credits, tax exemptions, carbon taxes and accelerated depreciation.
