Step 1 - Register your organisation
Organisations wishing to access the Energy Industry Voluntary Redress Scheme must complete a simple 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.
Please note: Organisations only need to register once. In order to be considered for the forthcoming funding window, please ensure registration is completed no later than two weeks prior to the application deadline. This is to allow enough time to check your eligibility. Those who register after this time will not be considered for the current window.
Step 2 - Apply for funds
The 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.
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.
Eligible charities will be informed if there are any additional priorities applied in each funding round and the maximum grant amount that can be requested. The minimum grant amount that can be requested is set at £20,000. This is to ensure the fund supports high quality projects that have the ability to make a real difference.
How a decision is made
Energy Saving Trust will work with a panel of independent experts to select the successful projects, based on criteria that will be shared with the application form for each fund. Successful applications will need to show that they address the scheme priorities, are credible and will have measurable positive impact.
The successful applicants will be notified by the Energy Saving Trust. If you are successful you will be required if requested to participate in promotional activity organised by the Energy Saving Trust.
If you apply for funds and are unsuccessful, you will receive a brief summary outlining why your application was unsuccessful.
