The Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) is offering £100,000 to community groups across Birmingham to support citywide low carbon sustainability projects. The funding competition is a significant part of 3D, an initiative to help decarbonise Birmingham in a decade.  The funding competition will be open for applications on the 7th of June.

CSE will support low carbon sustainability projects in Birmingham with grants of up to £10,000.

The funding competition is a significant part of 3D, an initiative to help decarbonise Birmingham in a decade (see project profile here). CSE will work alongside Birmingham City Council and the Birmingham Route to Zero Taskforce to support both city-wide and also local community projects using data to help reduce carbon emissions.

The funding competition is open to community groups and not-for-profit organisations. CSE are looking to fund low carbon projects focusing around a wide range of areas including behaviour change, air pollution, transport, energy and health.

Successful projects will support Birmingham’s net zero carbon targets by using data from the 3DHub (https://data.3dhub.org.uk/), a pioneering free platform using local data to understand the needs of communities.

This project is proudly supported by Birmingham council’s Route to Zero (R20) Taskforce and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, a global network working with more than 2,500 local and regional governments committed to sustainable urban development.
