To be eligible for funding, charities and community groups must put forward requests to support activities that help bring about a reduction in their own energy use, help generate energy from a renewable source, or provide energy efficiency advice for local people.

Applicants are being encouraged to get their funding requests in now, ahead of the application deadline of Friday, April 8.

The maximum amount awarded to any one group is £2,000, which may cover the full or part cost of energy-related improvements and activities.

Suzanne Doxey, community relations manager at E.ON, said: “I’m really pleased to be announcing a fresh round of our Energy Action Fund.

When judging previous applications to the fund, it’s been heartening to come across so many groups with a keen interest in energy, matched by an enthusiasm for sharing the benefits of the projects they’re proposing with the wider community.

“Of course we can’t fund every application.

“But when we come across a really deserving project which has been thoroughly researched and planned, and just lacks the money to proceed, it’s great to be able to help with the E.ON Energy Action Fund.”

Since its launch in 2013, E.ON’s Energy Action Fund has distributed over £75,000 to more than 40 community groups nationwide to support qualifying energy-related projects.
