The Carbon Trust

The Carbon Trust

The Carbon Trust has launched a new fund providing vital capital for smaller businesses to replace old, power-guzzling equipment, together with expert advice to boost the efficiency and productivity of businesses across England, Scotland and Wales.

The £7m fund has been made available to SMEs on a first come-first served basis, and will offer energy saving training, cost saving assessments, implementation advice, and capital support for the installation of energy efficiency equipment. 

Due to the success of the scheme to date, we are currently experiencing exceptionally high levels of demand. 

As a result, we have chosen to change the upper limit of the capital contribution offer as we try to maximise the energy efficiency benefits for as many SMEs as possible. 

Businesses can now access 15% of the total project cost for energy efficient equipment upgrades and refurbishments - up to a maximum of £5,000*. 

The fund can be used to purchase a range of equipment, including energy efficient lighting, Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) and energy efficiency controls – vital equipment across a range of business sectors, including manufacturing, retail, and hospitality.

Apply now - this support is available for a limited period on a first come, first served basis, aimed at small and medium sized businesses in England, Scotland and Wales.
