Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) guidance and resources for energy efficiency projects.
All Stage Two applicants should be able to define the outcomes of their project, the activities that will achieve these outcomes and how to monitor the progress that their project is making.
The Stage Two Guidance contains detailed information on all the above in section 2.4, however projects involving energy efficiency should find pages one and two of the worked example here useful.
Estimating carbon emissions
To help applicants estimate the carbon emissions (CO2e) savings of their CCF project we have produced the Carbon Estimator. It has sections to help applicants estimate CO2e savings for a number of activities for each project theme, so that they can establish what initiatives will be likely make the largest savings.
Partners and third-party resources
Your Development Officer will outline key organisations you should work with to plan and deliver your project. They will also outline third party resources that will prove helpful.
If you are looking for inspiration, might also find it useful to consult case studies of previously funded CCF energy efficiency projects.
Video guide and case studies
If you are looking for inspiration, might also find it useful to watch our video guide on providing home energy efficiency advice and check out our case studies of previously funded CCF energy efficiency projects.
Home energy advice
This guide, from Keep Scotland Beautiful, provides advice and support for community groups planning or running home energy advice projects. The information is targeted at groups running Climate Challenge Fund projects, but should be useful for all.
