The D2EE project is the winner of the East Midlands Energy Efficiency Awards 2018 and 2019.
Support was available for this project until October 2019.
The D2EE team is now working on the DE-Carbonise project offering grants and support to small and medium-sized businesses to reduce carbon emissions.
Is your business a small to medium-sized enterprise (SME), based in Derby or Derbyshire ?
Surveys and technical support is available for eligible businesses in Derby and Derbyshire. A Project Officer will visit your business and carry out a basic energy audit to identify measures to improve energy efficiency at your premises. This could include more efficient lighting, insulation, heating/cooling systems, compressors, motors, process equipment or renewable energy.
Grant funding for D2EE has now closed. Funding for reducing business carbon emissions will be available for the new DE-Carbonise project from November 2019.
Additional support to help businesses to reduce their carbon footprint may be available. For example, further advice on carbon reductions associated with specific equipment, use of raw materials, waste, recycling, fleet / business travel and staff behaviour change.
Complete the expression of interest above and one of our team will be in touch. Some business areas such as education and welfare may not be eligible - please check here for further details.
