EKOenergy’s Climate Fund
Fundraising for climate projects
One of the ways EKOenergy ensures additionality is through the Climate Fund. Thanks to users of EKOenergy-labelled electricity, we finance green energy projects that would not have happened otherwise.
- For each MWh of EKOenergy-labelled energy sold, the seller pays at least 0.10 € (ten cents) to the Climate Fund.
- We don’t set up our own projects, but rather finance projects implemented by experienced organisations. The selected projects are, in most cases, a part of larger, longer-lasting projects.
- All projects focus on alleviating energy poverty and contribute to the realisation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
- The projects are selected through a transparent and open process. Experts, as well as licensed sellers and energy consumers, are actively involved in the selection process. The final decision is taken by EKOenergy’s Board.
We financed the first projects in 2015 and, since then, have financed 94 projects with a total sum of 2,766,917.70 €.
