The Energy Saving Trust has just announced its latest round of awards through the Energy Redress Scheme to organisations across Great Britain. Successful projects will provide energy advice, support decarbonisation activities and develop innovative energy-focused services and products.
There are regular application windows for the Energy Saving Trust’s Energy Redress Scheme with often significantly large grants awarded. A list of the latest successful applicants is provided below.
In the most recent funding round,15 awards worth a total of £2.5 million are being made from the Main and Small Funds. These projects focus on keeping people warm by providing essential advice through clinics and dedicated energy advice officers.
Over five years, the Energy Redress Scheme has distributed a total of £85.5 million funding to support 491 projects in England, Scotland and Wales. The funding is collected through Ofgem’s enforcement and compliance activity, where companies that have breached energy rules agree to make a voluntary payment into the Energy Redress Scheme.
The three funding rounds include the Main and Small fund, which are aimed at projects supporting households in vulnerable situations. The Carbon Emission Reduction Fund (CERF) supports energy-related activities that will see a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions from energy use. Finally, the Innovative Fund supports the development of pioneering products and services related to energy.
