Price support allows communities to raise low-cost citizen finance for renewable energy projects

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review

Abstract

Community energy groups can raise citizen finance for renewable energy projects at lower interest rates than from commercial lenders, but they often depend on price guarantee schemes. Policies providing price stability and business model innovations are needed to realize the sector’s potential contribution to the zero-carbon energy transition.
