Shared Ownership Module

Shared Ownership Module

This module has been developed for Local Energy Scotland to provide support to community groups looking to invest in a renewable project that is being developed by a commercial developer or a project the community has developed they wish to share with a commercial developer. The module outlines the different factors that need to be considered when making an investment decision and how to obtain the relevant support when making these investment decisions.

It is part of the CARES Project Development Toolkit and in addition to this module, there are other relevant guidance documents and tools available that should be reviewed in conjunction:

  • Project Finance Module – this module provides an overview of renewable project finance, the terms that are used and how to determine the financial viability of a project;
  • Sources of Finance – this module lists some of the available sources of finance for a community group looking to invest in a commercial project. This includes grants and loans from traditional financiers and more innovative sources of finance; and
  • Finance Glossary – a summary of the finance terms used in renewable projects.
