Energy Saving Trust was appointed by Ofgem in April 2018 to deliver the Energy Redress scheme, which distributes voluntary payments made by energy companies that may have breached regulations.

Its core priority is to support energy consumers in vulnerable situations. A small proportion of the funding can also support projects that develop or trial innovative products or services that will support energy consumers.

The funding is made available to charities in England, Scotland and Wales to deliver projects and services that meet the priorities of the scheme. Charities can register their interest the scheme at any time and if they pass a basic due diligence process, they can then submit applications when a funding round opens.

Energy Saving Trust has developed an open application process for charities seeking funding from the Energy Redress Scheme. Successful projects will be selected with input from an independent panel of experts and could cover a range of locations across England, Scotland and Wales. We will be administering the scheme until 2021.
