GREBE Programme open for applications

Published: 7th April 2016

‘Generating Renewable Energy Business Enterprise’ (GREBE) is a project to support renewable energy energy enterprises over the 3-year period, 2015 – 2018. It is a transnational project operating across the West of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Finland, Norway and Iceland, and is part funded through the European Union’s Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme 2014-2020, and focuses on the challenges of peripheral and arctic regions as places for doing business.  The project will be led by the Western Development Commission (WDC) in Ireland.

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is one of 8 European partners involved in delivering the project. The Council’s role is to deliver an ‘Entrepreneur Enabler Scheme’ pilot in the Fermanagh and Omagh area. The pilot scheme will engage with 12 SMEs in the renewable energy sector and offer them 6 days free mentoring support tailored specifically to their business needs. Examples of support available include:

  • Business financing
  • Business planning
  • HR issues
  • Sales & marketing
  • Technical support
  • Research & development support

SME’s interested in participating in the pilot scheme are asked to complete an expression of interest form and return it to the Council by Friday 15th April 2016. Please note the process is competitive due to the limited spaces available. To request an expression of interest form and for further information, please call Una Porteous on T: 0300 303 1777 or email: una.porteous@fermanaghomagh.com.
