Scottish Enterprise - Energy Investment Fund
The Energy Investment Fund (‘EIF’) is a Scottish Government Fund managed and delivered by the Scottish Investment Bank. It provides commercial investment for renewable and low carbon energy solutions. EIF will provide flexible investment and debt funding for energy projects in Scotland that will facilitate, catalyse and accelerate Scotland’s transition to a low carbon economy.
It will focus on: increasing community ownership of energy projects in Scotland (including community stakes in commercial developments); accelerating the development of commercial low carbon energy projects in Scotland. EIF is a gap funder, and will only invest where there is a demonstrable funding gap in a project’s funding package. Projects must be committed to the principle of community benefit as outlined in the Scottish Government’s good practice guidelines.
