The Scottish Government is seeking a suitably qualified and experienced Service Provider, to undertake the delivery of the Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES) in Scotland.

— The promotion of CARES which is mainly facilitated through a dedicated website and annual conference.

— Support for a local energy systems approach, which is currently facilitated through the Local Energy Challenge Fund and the Infrastructure and Innovation Fund.

The Service Provider shall be responsible for reviewing the support currently in place to ensure it can continue to deliver the Scottish Government's ambitions and targets.

— Loans — recovery of all existing loan repayments from current loan schemes, including those which have been closed or will no longer be available at the contract start date.

— Grants — the need to ensure recipients comply with the terms and conditions of issue.

— Administration and management including the processing, assessment and decision-making of applications received to the various funding programmes.

— Support on complex financial matters associated with investing in a renewable energy and or low carbon project including the refinancing of operational projects.
