Funding Opportunity

Energy Efficiency Education Grant Program

Deadline: 
15 Dec 2018

Communities are not just the places in which we live. Communities are also the groups of people that we gather with to share interests, passions, or purpose. We want to support the diverse communities in Alberta to engage in energy efficient actions in the places they work, live and play. The foundation of energy efficient actions is the understanding of how best to be energy efficient in those spaces.

Organizations are eligible to receive funding to help Albertans build awareness, skills and capacity to take action on energy efficiency and renewable energy. For a project to be eligible, it should create a measurable impact and align with one or more of the following program objectives:

  • Leverage education related to enhancing energy efficiency
  • Build capacity in communities to deliver GHG reductions
  • Reduce GHG emissions in a measurable way that leverages learning

Energy Efficiency Alberta and Alberta Ecotrust

Energy Efficiency Alberta and Alberta Ecotrust are working together to administer the grant selection process. Part of Alberta Ecotrust’s mission is to build capacity in other non-profit organizations seeking grant funding. Through our partnership, they will deliver application coaching and debriefing to all applicants. We encourage all applicants to reach out to Alberta Ecotrust with questions about the Energy Efficiency Education Grant Program.
