Are you interested in making your business more energy efficient? If so, this programme can provide one-to-one tailored and impartial energy efficiency support/facilitation and discretionary grants to catalyse investment in energy efficiencies initiatives.
The fund provides support and grants to small businesses to help catalyse investment in energy efficiency initiatives, to reduce carbon emissions and realise the associated business benefits including, reducing operating costs, increased competiveness and business growth and resilience.
Recent changes to European funding rules mean that retail businesses can now also access grants for energy efficiency measures alongside other businesses. Retail is one of the largest sectors in the region and, while energy use might be a relatively small part of turnover, savings represent an easy win for many businesses.
A number of shops have already benefitted from free and independent advice; now a change in the funding regulations means that shops can also access grants towards the capital costs of any energy saving measure.
Dependant on where the business is located, grants are available for up to 28% of the overall project cost, up to a maximum of £20,000, with a minimum of £1,000 (approximate total project cost of £3,500).
