Energy Saving Trust - Energy Redress Scheme


Energy Saving Trust has been appointed by Ofgem to distribute payments from energy companies who have breached rules. The funds can pay for anything from making a home more energy efficient, to providing advice that helps consumers keep on top of their bills.

The priorities of the scheme are to support energy consumers in vulnerable situations, develop innovative products or services and empower consumers to reduce their carbon emissions. Projects should also focus on enabling a just transition to national net zero carbon emissions targets and reducing the impact of climate change associated with energy consumption.

The scheme will fund new projects in the following funding streams:

  • The Main Fund aimed at projects that will support energy consumers in vulnerable situations.
  • The Small Project Fund aimed at projects that will support energy consumers in vulnerable situations.
  • Innovation Fund aimed at projects that will develop innovative products or services to benefit energy consumers.
  • Carbon Emissions Reduction Fund is targeted at projects that can help domestic energy consumers participate in the just transition to Net Zero CO2 emissions.
  • Winter Energy Fund is dedicated to prepayment meter customers who are at risk of self-disconnection.
