Staying competitive is a priority for UK businesses, and becoming ever more challenging. However, by increasing their energy efficiency, they could reduce overheads without impacting productivity. The Carbon Trust can help fund the cost of buying and installing energy efficient equipment such as replacement lighting, heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration, or investing in renewables.
Interest Free loans are available to businesses from £3,000 to £200,000 in Wales and up to £400,000 in Northern Ireland. Loans are designed so that in most cases the monthly energy savings should exceed the monthly repayments.
In addition to the loan scheme, SME’s in England, Scotland and Wales could benefit from a non-repayable Green Business Fund Capital Contribution, of up to £10,000, to help fund the cost of their energy efficiency project. We can also provide free support to identify opportunities.
