Business Energy Efficiency Programme

What is on offer?

We are offering free energy efficiency assessments which could lead to grants for businesses who wish to use their energy more efficiently, reducing costs and improving environmental credentials.

Step 1: Energy & Resource Efficiency Assessment

An Energy Advisor will assess your equipment, premises, processes and performance to identify opportunities for improvements in energy usage. You
will then receive a report detailing recommendations for improvement.

Step 2: Grant Application

Following your assessment you can apply for a grant of up to £20,000. The grant intervention rate is 40% e.g. if your project costs £10,000, your
contribution is £6,000 and we provide £4,000. The minimum grant is £1,000.

The grant can fund:

  • lighting which includes movement / light sensors
  • variable speed drives & compressors
  • electric forklift & machinery
  • energy efficient equipment that leads to process improvements
  • systems offering better use of heat or waste heat
  • energy efficient refrigeration equipment
