Community Benefit Fund

Community Benefit Fund

In addition to the direct benefits which Dublin Array will bring in terms of climate action and decarbonising the electricity supply in Ireland, there will be significant local community benefits including funding opportunities for community projects. RWE have over 25 years’ experience of delivering community benefit funds, tailored to meet the individual needs of the different communities in which we operate.

We are commited to offering a community benefit fund for Dublin Array which will support education, energy efficiency, sustainable energy, local community, and climate action initiatives. At this early stage in the project we would like to hear your ideas about how the Dublin Array Offshore Wind Farm could support your community, so we can consider them as we start to develop the details of the community benefit activities we will undertake.

RWE’s community benefits at our operating renewable energy projects in the UK and Ireland have helped to improve the quality of life for people in many ways such as supporting the improvement of community buildings, supporting projects to improve broadband, supporting education and training grants, enhancing opportunities for tourism, supplying iPads for schools, and supporting workers for homeless shelters.

One example of such a community benefit is RWE’s Gwynt y Môr Offshore Wind Farm Community Fund benefitting north Wales. In one year alone it invested nearly €750,000 into 48 community projects. This funding helped to secure a further €2.3 million in match funding and helped create 33.5 jobs. Click here for more info >>
