New £150,000 Grant pot to kickstart green recovery

Date:

Update 10th July: Please note that based on applications currently being assessed, the Green Recovery Grant Pot is now fully committed. Submissions will continue to be supported at our usual rates.

As lockdown restrictions relax for many, businesses are starting to look to the future again.

With growing discussion about how to rebuild in a way that tackles the climate emergency, here at Business Energy Efficiency (BEE) Anglia we want to do our bit to kickstart the green recovery.

As a result, we’re launching a special Green Recovery Grant Pot, with increased grant rates, which will run for the next two months and provide grants of 40-50% towards the upfront costs of carbon saving steps.

This offer applies to all grants reviewed by the panel until 31st July 2020 or until the pot is fully committed.  Anyone interested in the grant can find out more in a webinar on 17th June.

We recognise that the Coronavirus pandemic still means barriers for many businesses, which may result in installation of energy saving measures taking longer than normal.  Our advisors will talk to you about your plans and agree a bespoke claim period to suit your needs. The cut-off point for higher intervention rate offer applies to when your application is submitted, so you can still take advantage of it even if you won’t be able to complete the work yet.

The Green Recovery Grant Pot has £150,000 available for distribution on a first come first served basis; if you’re interested, we would urge you to speak to one of the team as soon as possible to ensure you don’t miss out.

The Green Recovery Grant Pot covers measures such as Electric Vehicles, Solar Panels, Battery Storage and Heat Pumps amongst many others.  More standard measures such as LED lighting or insulation continue to attract 20% grants from BEE Anglia.  For full details of the funding available for each technology, see www.beeanglia.org/grants
