The Energy Impact Awards, run by NEA in partnership with British Gas, will recognise innovation and best practice amongst agencies running projects that focus on energy and tackling fuel poverty by benefiting vulnerable people.
One winner will receive a first prize of £10,000 and two runner-up prizes of £5,000 and £2,500 will be made. The scheme is open to community groups, charities, and other third sector organisations. Local authorities, health agencies and other public and statutory organisations are also eligible to apply and we are specifically looking for applications which demonstrate partnership working. The scheme will close on Friday 19 May 2017.
George said, “Example projects are those that make links between health and fuel poverty, distributed and renewable energy projects, projects improving the lives of those living in fuel poverty, or other innovative initiatives. This is a wonderful scheme and I would encourage anyone with an innovative project to apply”.
