£1.2million of capital funding is available to support projects that can reduce carbon levels in public-sector buildings across the county.

The funding is there to help applicants to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings and invest in renewable energy technologies, but there is only a week left to apply.

The Public Sector Energy Efficiency (PEEP) grant funding can help to fund up to 40% of the total NET project costs, awarding up to £200,000.

The grant is able to support businesses to invest in energy saving measures such as:
- Renewable energy systems,
- Heat decarbonisation e.g. air source heat pumps,
- Smart LED lighting,

- Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS),

- Whole building retrofits
Larger project proposals will also be considered.

Interested applicants must submit their paperwork to the PEEP team by 11:59pm on Sunday 1st  May 2022.

Liz Alston, Sustainability Manager at Worcestershire County Council said, “The programme has been able to help many public sector organisations to successfully reduce their environmental footprint. With just a week left to apply, I strongly encourage those eligible to apply. The application process is simple and efficient. To date, 100% of eligible applications have successfully secured PEEP funding.”

A full list of eligible measures can be found on the Public Sector Energy Efficiency programmes pages on the County Council’s website.

All projects must be completed by the end of May 2023.
