GYM Offshore Wind Farm, located off the coast of North Wales, is the world’s second largest wind farm.

It represents a total investment of more than £2 billion, currently shared between Innogy SE (50%); Stadtwerke München GmbH, Munich’s municipal utilities company (30%); the UK Green Investment Bank (10%) and Siemens (10%).

The fund is open for small applications up to £10,000. It will be able to fund both capital and revenue projects that focus on the three themes of the fund:

  • Building strong, cohesive and sustainable communities
  • Developing prosperous, enterprising communities with strong economic growth
