2022’s First Call for EKOenergy Climate Fund Projects

About

Applications are now open for the 2022’s First Call for EKOenergy Climate Fund Projects.

In order to bring additionality to consumers’ choice of renewable energy and help realise Sustainable Development Goal 7 (affordable, clean energy for all), the EKOenergy ecolabel raises funds for new renewable electricity projects in developing countries and regions. For each MWh of sold EKOenergy-labelled energy, their licensees pay 0.10 € to EKOenergy’s Climate Fund. These contributions go to carefully selected renewable electricity projects aimed to alleviate energy poverty in developing countries and regions.

The projects they finance via their Climate Fund are usually small-scale solar (PV) and wind energy projects. All financed projects are managed by experienced organisations and are implemented in cooperation with local NGOs.
