Funding to Support Energy Consumers in Vulnerable Situations

Grants are available to offer support to energy consumers and/or to develop innovative new products.

The Energy Redress Fund has reopened for 2022, with the following priorities:

  • Support energy consumers in vulnerable situations.
  • Deliver benefits to the types of consumers that were negatively impacted by the specific issues that triggered the redress payment.

There is a total of £23 million to fund new projects, with grants ranging from £20,000 to £2 million.

Registered charities in England, Scotland and Wales that are registered with the Energy Redress Scheme and have passed the due diligence process may apply for the Small Projects Fund, Main Projects Fund or Innovation Fund.

Examples of the kind of activities that can be funded through the Energy Redress Scheme include:

  • Engaging vulnerable customers with energy issues and referring them for support.
  • Delivering energy advice that does not duplicate existing advice services.
  • Installation of energy saving or renewable energy measures that cannot be funded elsewhere and/or are innovative or are being used in innovative ways.
  • In-home safety advice and measures related to energy systems.
  • Training and education on energy that is targeted at supporting vulnerable customers.

Grants can cover capital or revenue funding for projects lasting up to two years.

The deadline to apply is 5pm on 6 June 2022.
