Our mission is to help public buildings become more energy efficient.
By lowering energy use and carbon emissions it will help to reduce cost and make a huge difference to the environment at the same time.
If your public building is located in located within the Greater Lincolnshire area you could be eligible for grant funding.
The funding is there to help you invest in energy saving measures for your building such as LED lights, solar PV, building management systems and much more!
Examples of public buildings include schools and local authority buildings.
The energy saving measures that could be put into place but not limited to are:
- Solar PV
- Heat pumps
- Small wind turbines
- Heating replacements and upgrades
- Hot water saving measures
- Controls and zoning to manage heating more effectively
- Building management systems and display dashboards for building users
- Lighting upgrades and controls
- Refrigeration upgrades and controls
Smart Energy will fund up to 50% of an energy saving project for a public building.
In addition to the funding that we provide, applicants must be prepared to provide match funding from their own resources which is also public funding.
One funding stream that has been widely used is Salix Finance which provides 100% interest-free finance for energy efficiency projects across the UK public sector.
Currently we have closed full applications, but you can still express an interest just in case further funding becomes available.
Please read the eligibility and further information below before expressing your interest:
