We do not consider applications for activities outside the scope of EU climate strategy and, more specifically, our own areas of activity. Likewise, we do not support local projects unless they have been consciously designed for replication or have broad European regional or national implications.
We do not make grants directly to individuals, or grants intended to support a particular political party or sectarian or religious purposes.
We do not fund the research and development of technology (e.g., funds to develop hybrid automobiles or commercialisation of an invention), demonstration projects (e.g., model solar homes), or community energy projects.
We do not fund endowments or debt reduction, nor do we make general-support grants.
We do not support annual fundraising campaigns or capital construction. Nor do we support the planning, renovation, maintenance, retrofit, or purchase of buildings, or the acquisition of land, even if the intent is to save energy.
