Energy Redress Scheme – Carbon Emissions Reduction Fund

Deadline: 6th June 2022

Grants are available to charities in Great Britain for projects that empower householders to reduce their carbon emissions and engage positively with the transition to net zero.  The minimum grant that can be requested is £50,000 for projects up to two years. Applications are accepted from registered charities, Community Interest Companies, Community Benefit Societies and Cooperative Societies. The following types of projects are unlikely to be funded:

  • Projects for carbon saving measures in bespoke individual buildings or unique building typologies that are not widely replicable and so will have a limited impact on UK carbon emissions.
  • Projects where the application does not demonstrate sufficient relevant expertise within the project team. This is especially important for projects that aim to provide advice on carbon emissions reduction.
  • Projects that focus on awareness raising but do not demonstrate a clear pathway to delivering meaningful and lasting carbon emissions reductions (eg through installation of measures). Advice should lead to verifiable actions.
