Local MP for Denton and Reddish, Andrew Gwynne, has today lent his support to the Energy Impact Award Scheme which recognises businesses and providers who champion energy efficiency and help tackle fuel poverty.
NEA and British Gas have now launched this year’s Energy Impact Award scheme with a first prize of £10,000, and two runner-up prizes of £5,000 and £2,500.
The Energy Impact Award Scheme recognises innovation and best practice amongst agencies running projects that focus on energy efficiency and tackling fuel poverty in communities by benefiting vulnerable people in the local area. This could be, for example, projects that make links between health and fuel poverty, promoting renewable energy projects and projects which improve the lives of those living in fuel poverty.
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 with the scheme looking specifically for applications which demonstrate partnership working. Relevant agencies from England, Scotland and Wales are all welcome to apply, with the exception of Northern Ireland, which runs its own scheme.
The scheme will close on Friday 19 May 2017, shortlisting and judging will take place in June 2017 and winners will be informed thereafter.
