Grants to Combat Fuel Poverty & Improve Energy Efficiency - External

Registered charities, community groups and other not-for-profit organisations in London, the East and South East of England can apply for grants of between £2,000 and £20,000 to combat fuel poverty, improve energy efficiency and support disadvantaged and vulnerable members of the community, particularly those experiencing difficulties resulting from Covid-19.

This might include providing energy efficiency advice including tariff switching, new registrations for the Priority Service Register, and the provision of energy advice training and support for frontline workers.

The Power Partners community investment fund comes from UK Power Networks, the company that owns and maintains electricity infrastructure in the South East, East of England and London, distributing power to 8.3 million homes and businesses and has already invested more than £670,000 on 41 projects to date.

This fifth funding round focuses on support services such as income maximisation, energy efficiency advice and interventions, tariff switching and time of use tariff awareness, new registrations for the Priority Services Register; provision of energy advice training and support for frontline workers.

This funding provides a unique opportunity for organisations to respond to identified needs of individuals or communities with specific vulnerabilities (for example, those resulting from Covid-19). UK Power Networks would particularly like to hear from organisations with proposals which demonstrate an innovate response to the increasingly pressing challenge of fuel poverty.

The Fund is administered by the Centre for Sustainable Energy. The application deadline is the 25th October 2021.
