Overview

The Camden Climate Fund can provide up to 50% of costs to install renewable energy systems and make energy efficiency improvements to homes, businesses and community spaces. This includes solar photovoltaic panels (to provide electricity) and solar thermal systems (to provide hot water).

The Camden Climate Fund is financed by Camden’s carbon offset payments, which are collected through the planning system when developments in Camden fall short of the Mayor of London’s carbon targets. More information on carbon offset payments is provided on the GLA website.

Although the Fund is ongoing, it is very limited.  We therefore recommend that you apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Apply for household fund

Apply for Household fund

Demand for energy in our homes is increasing, with technology supporting much of our domestic, social, work and (if you own an electric car) travel needs. Enabling your home to generate its own energy helps meet these demands. For private landlords, Private Rented Energy Efficiency Regulations introduced in April 2018 make it unlawful to rent out properties below Energy Performance Certificate band E.

The Camden Climate Fund provides funding of up to £1,500 to support households and landlords install renewable energy measures to help reduce bills and cut associated carbon emissions. Read the Camden Climate Fund: Household – Terms and Conditions before applying.

Community energy is a way in which communities can own, manage and generate renewable energy systems, which brings benefits to the local community. The Camden Climate Fund provides funding of up to £15,000 for community energy groups to install and manage renewable energy systems that generate energy for the benefit of the local community in some form.

Local businesses and institutions account for 66% of Camden’s carbon emissions, it is therefore important they take the lead in reducing their energy consumption.  Camden has launched a new fund to support small to medium business and third sector organisations across the borough cut their carbon emissions and lower fuel bills.

The Camden Climate Fund provides funding of up to £5,000 towards the installation costs of renewable technologies and/or energy efficiency improvements. Such measures include solar panels, lighting and heating upgrades. Successful applicants are required to match-fund 50% of costs, plus any additional over the maximum allowance.  Please read the Terms and Conditions before applying.
