Grant helps Bury St Edmunds Business Kiezebrink cut energy costs
Kiezebrink UK are one of the largest suppliers of exotic animal food and raw meat diets in the UK. They have recently been awarded grant funding from the Business Energy Efficiency (BEE) Anglia project to increase their processing and freezer storage facility.
Following an independent energy audit, Kiezebrink UK successfully applied for a grant of £17,000. The energy savings gained by implementing this project will amount to 37.7 CO2e per year, plus cost savings of £7,500. This will support future growth within their business, while working to protect our environment.
“Without the funding supplied by BEE Anglia we wouldn’t have been able to afford the extra cost of installing energy saving freezer condensing units, frequency inverters and LED lighting. Our aim is to grow the company without having any increased impact on the environment. Hopefully implementing these energy saving techniques has helped us achieve this goal.”
Alasdair Gordon, Operations Director at Kiezebrink UK.
“I am delighted that we have been able to support Kiezebrink UK to enhance their sustainability – both economically and environmentally via this scheme. The Business Energy Efficiency Anglia project offers all businesses the independent assurance that these savings will really be achieved.”
Cllr. Matthew Hicks, Cabinet Member for Environment and Public Protection, Suffolk County Council
