Eaga Charitable Trust
The Eaga Charitable Trust, an independent grant giving trust founded by Eaga, now Carillion Energy Services, provides financial support for work that contributes to understanding and addressing the causes and effects of fuel poverty.
The Trust reports that as it approaches its Silver Jubilee, its funds are reducing and its future is uncertain. If it does not identify new sources of funding themselves, this is likely to be the Trust’s penultimate round of grant-giving.
The 2017 focus is on health, wellbeing and social cohesion, including the behavioural aspects of measures to improve energy efficiency and increase access to low-carbon technologies.
Grant applications will be accepted for work based in the UK and other EU countries only. The subject of research needs to demonstrate direct relevance and application to UK fuel poverty policy.
Grant priority areas are as follows:
Health, wellbeing and social cohesion aspects of fuel poverty.
Low-carbon policies, behaviours and practices.
All types of organisations and individual research consultants are eligible to apply for grants of up to £25,000.
Please note that there is limited funding for grants and the competition is strong.
The deadline for applications is 28 July 2017.
