Energy Efficiency Grants

 

 

 

Eligible small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) can apply for grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 to cover up to one-third1 of the cost of energy efficiency projects. SMEs must meet the Utilise Plus programme’s full eligibility criteria.

 

To receive a grant, a project must demonstrate:

  • Quantifiable energy and carbon savings.
  • Best practice over standard replacement.
  • That the installation is suitable for the business’ premises and activities.


How to apply

  • REGISTER YOUR INTEREST
  • We will contact you within 5 working days of registering to discuss the next steps in the application process.

If your application is successful, you will have 3 months following confirmation of the grant award in which to install and pay for your project.

To claim the grant funding, you will then need to submit a claim to the Sustainable Business Partnership CIC, along with evidence of the project being completed in accordance with your application and the grant award, including:

  • Photographs of the project before and after installation.
  • The invoice from your contractor for the completed work(s).
  • Your bank statement showing payment of the full project cost to the contractor’s bank account.
  • Your invoice to the Sustainable Business Partnership CIC for the grant amount.
 “Thank you very much for your support throughout this project. The lighting has made a great difference and we will also be saving money on our bills, so its win, win!”
Linda Baker, Westways Vending, Hailsham

 

1 The remaining two-thirds of the project cost must be provided by your organisation directly or through a non-EU funded source and you must be able to provide evidence that this match-funding is in place as a condition of any grant award.
