Details of Round 6 of the Energy Redress Scheme

Round 6 of the Energy Redress Scheme opened on Wednesday 22nd January 2020 and closes to applications at 5pm on Wednesday 19th February.

There are three funds open in the Round, to ensure projects of a similar nature and scale are assessed against each other.
