    How to Decarbonise your Community Building

    12.30pm to 3pmCivic House, 26 Civic Street, Glasgow G4 9RH

    Do you want to reduce your community building’s energy costs and carbon emissions? If so, the Scottish Government’s Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES) is here to help.

    Funding and support is available to communities to decarbonise community buildings by installing renewable technologies such as heat pumps and solar panels.

    Join us at Civic House in Glasgow where you’ll:

    • learn about how CARES can help your community
    • find out about the funding available to install renewable technologies
    • hear how Agile City plans to install battery storage at Civic House, and new solar panels and battery storage at the Glue Factory, all with the support of CARES
    • see the technologies up close and hear more about how they work
    • have time to network with other communities attending.

    Local Energy Scotland, which manages CARES for the Scottish Government, will have development officers on hand to answer any questions you may have.
