The Energy Saving Trust has announced that the new Carbon Emissions Reduction Fund has opened to applications.
The fund can award grants between £50,000 and £500,000 to projects that meet the following criteria:
- Demonstrate measurable and lasting reductions in the carbon intensity of energy end use and accelerate the transition to net zero carbon
- Have a realistic prospect of delivering broadly replicable benefits to existing and/or future energy consumers
The funding is available to registered charities, in England, Scotland and Wales and closes for applications on the 11th February 2021.
Charities interested in applying for funding must first register with the scheme, so that the Energy Redress team can check their charitable status, internal governance arrangements and financial health.
