Renewable energy marketplace

solpan Published Friday, 23rd June 2017

Businesses and residents in Worcestershire are being invited to a Renewable energy marketplace.

Renewable energy is a great way to save money, improve your environmental performance and increase your energy capacity.

Come along to the event on Tuesday 11 July, 8-11.30am, to find out about which renewable energy systems might work for you, meet local installers and find out about the grant funding available for businesses.

Taking place at Worcestershire County Cricket Club, attendees will also have an opportunity to hear from a local business which has installed renewable energy already. The Specialist programme advisors will be on hand for one-to-one discussions with businesses after the presentations.

From 8am, attendees will enjoy a breakfast and an opportunity to meet local installers of renewable energy. Presentations will finish by 10.30am with the event closing at 11.30am.

This event is part of the Low Carbon Opportunities Programme, which offers support and funding for businesses to install renewable energy systems in Worcestershire and is funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

The event will give local businesses the chance to find out about this programme which could support them to install renewables, including: solar panels, biomass boilers, ground source heat pumps, battery storage and more. It will also take attendees through our easy application process, which can lead to up to 45% funding for projects.

Ruth Corrall, manager of the Low Carbon Opportunities Programme, said: "We would encourage all businesses who may be interested in generating their own energy to come along to this event. We'll be giving details of how you can receive up to 45% funding towards installation of a renewable energy system, as well as support to choose the right system for you to save you money. There will also be local installers you can talk to and plenty of expert advice."
