Ofgem offers £22mn for vulnerable households & energy projects

£22million is available to charities and community energy groups supporting households most at risk from cold homes and high energy bills, or working on innovation and carbon emissions reduction across England, Scotland and Wales.

The grants are available through the Ofgem Energy Industry Voluntary Redress Scheme (Energy Redress Scheme) second funding round of phase two of the scheme.

The money comes from Ofgem’s enforcement and compliance activity, which collects voluntary payments from companies that may have breached Ofgem administered rules. Energy Saving Trust manages the allocation of payments for the Scheme, which has been in place for four years. Its priorities are to support energy consumers in vulnerable situations, develop innovative products or services and empower consumers to reduce their carbon emissions.
