Energy Advice Demonstrator Funding Competition

DESNZ and the Local Net Zero Hubs have launched a Local Energy Advice Demonstrator competition for providers to come forward with pilot projects that will provide innovative in-person energy advice to consumers in their local areas. The deadline to apply is 21 April 2023.

An England-wide competition has been launched by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero and the Net Zero Hubs to provide local, innovative, in-person energy advice services to consumers.  This is expected to offer insights that could be replicated nationally. Projects put forward for the competition must, as a minimum, provide support either for hard-to-treat properties or for hard-to-reach consumers. Providers can make a maximum request of £2 million investment over financial years 2023-24 and 2024-25.

The competition has now launched, with an application window of 5 weeks. To be considered, your application to the competition must be submitted on the application form provided (download it here) and sent to by 21st April 2023.
