EKOenergy Climate Fund. EKOenergy offers a label for sustainable electricity to energy companies meeting its criteria and standards. These are companies that produce all or a part of their electricity supply from wind, solar, biogas, hydropower, geothermal, and/or biomass sources.

The participating companies sign an EKOenergy Licence Agreement. For each MWh of electricity sold under the EKOenergy label, at least 10 eurocents are contributed to EKOenergy’s Climate Fund. With these contributions, the Climate Fund makes grants for small renewable electricity projects in the developing world.

About the Climate Fund

APPLICATION: The Climate Fund calls for proposals on the EKOenergy website.
