The D2 Energy Efficiency team can work with your business to improve energy efficiency and reduce operating costs. Support available until October 2019.
Is your business a small to medium-sized enterprise (SME), based in Derby or 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. The resulting report can form the baseline for a grant application.
SMEs can apply for grants of up to £15,000 towards the cost of energy efficiency measures in their premises (the grant can cover up to 65% of the cost of the work). This could include more efficient lighting, insulation, heating/ cooling systems, compressors, motors, process equipment or renewable energy.
Additional support to help businesses to become more energy efficient may be available if a grant is not applied for. For example, further advice on reducing energy use, advice on equipment and staff behaviour change training.
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.
Support is available from the University of Derby Business School to help businesses to access the low carbon supply chain.
Research and development technical support consultancy is provided by the Institute for Innovation in Sustainable Engineering.
For more information see the Low Carbon Business webpages.
The D2 Energy Efficiency Project is a partnership between the University of Derby, Derby City Council and Derbyshire County Council and is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020.
