Funding to Support Vulnerable Energy Consumers

| Return|

The Energy Saving Trust has been appointed by Ofgem to distribute payments to charities from energy companies who have breached rules. The Energy Industry Voluntary Redress Scheme will be administered until 2021.

The priority of the scheme is to support individual energy consumers in vulnerable situations, with a small percentage of the fund available to support innovative products and services that will help existing or future energy consumers.

The funds can pay for anything from making a home more energy efficient, to providing advice that helps consumers keep on top of their bills.

A total of £17 million is being provided for Round Six.

The minimum grant that can be requested is £20,000 and the maximum amount of funding available through the scheme varies throughout the year and will be reviewed on a quarterly basis in October, January, April and July.

Charitable organisations that support energy customers in England, Scotland and Wales are eligible to apply.

The deadline for applications to Round Six is 19 February 2020.

How To Apply

The deadline for applications to Round Six is 19 February 2020.

Organisations wishing to access the Scheme must complete an online information form so that Energy Saving Trust can check whether they are eligible to apply. Charities that meet the initial criteria will be notified and will be emailed a link to create an account, through which they can apply for all subsequent rounds. 

When funds become available, eligible charities will be notified to use their online account to apply for funds. The system allows charities to create, review, save and submit funding applications in multiple rounds. Charities should only set up one account, which can have multiple users.
