We're sharing the great news thatcommunity energy organisation, Energise Barnsley, who are raising funds via the Ethex platform, has been awarded £100,000 in match funding from CO2Sense.


This match funding will double the impact of the next £100,000 invested into the energise Barnsley Bond Offer, with each £1 matched from the fund to support this extraordinary community energy organisation to continue to generate clean, renewable energy, cutting carbon emissions and funding community initiatives.

CO2Sense is a non-profit community interest company that has pledged £500,000 through its capital fund to co-invest in impactful organisations listed on the Ethex platform focused on renewable energy, sustainable transport, green technologies and climate-smart agriculture.

Energise Barnsley is a fantastic example of a successful organisation that is actively helping to reduce the UK's carbon emissions, 20% of which currently come from our homes.  As the largest community energy project in the UK, they have fitted solar panels on hundreds of council-owned properties in the Barnsley area, including over 320 council homes.

This confirmation of match funding is fantastic news for Energise Barnsley in the final week of the bond offer - They have raised over £1.5 million of their £1.75 million target and it is hoped that this funding boost will help them to raise the full amount.
