Energy authority Ofgem has re-opened its Energy Redress Scheme: a scheme providing grants to projects supporting innovation, carbon emissions reductions and vulnerable households.
The fifth funding round is available for charities and community energy groups to apply for grants through four funding streams. Community energy groups include community interest companies, co-operative societies and community benefit societies.
The £3 million fund can be accessed through four funding streams:
- £450,000 – aimed at projects that will reduce UK carbon emissions and empower households to reduce their carbon footprint. Applicants can apply for grants between £20,000 to £200,000.
- £1.8m – aimed at projects seeking grants between £50,000 and £250,000 that will support households at risk of high energy bills or cold homes
- £300,000 – aimed at projects seeking grants between £20,000 to £49,999.99 that will support households in vulnerable situations.
- £450,000 – aimed at projects that will develop innovative products or services to benefit households. Applicants can apply for grants between £20,000 to £200,000.
“The funding will also support charities and community organisations to deliver projects focused on achieving a net zero future and helping to ensure a just transition for as many people as possible,” Anthony Kyriakides, head of renewables at Energy Saving Trust, said.
To apply, organisations need to be pre-registered by visiting the Energy Redress registration page.
Governments across the world are recognising that the key to energy security and lower prices is energy management projects.
This comes as no surprise. Businesses that have invested in energy efficiency have seen better investment, revenue and talent retention.
