The EKOenergy has announced the second call for proposals for small-scale river restoration projects in Norway, Germany, or Sweden, where EKOenergy-labelled hydropower has been produced and sold in previous years.
EKOenergy’s Environmental Fund is committed to funding river restoration projects through the allocation of at least EUR 0.10 for each megawatt-hour of EKOenergy hydropower sold and consumed.
- The requested amount for this call can be up to EUR 30,000 per project, with a total of EUR 61,000 to be distributed to organisations. If a sufficient number of eligible proposals is not received, EKOenergy may consider exceeding the maximum funding amount for the selected project(s), provided that the project activities can be meaningfully expanded.
- The main applicant must be a registered non-profit NGO, and therefore, cannot be a company or an individual. EKOenergy’s funding can also be used in projects that are part of a larger project (but are within it a distinct, separately reportable entity).
- The proposed project must start in 2024.
