Funding and support

Investing in energy efficiency will deliver returns for your business. Our funding and loans can help you identify opportunities and build a business case for investment.

For many of our programmes, we work through Programme Partners - businesses with the specialist, technical expertise to help you identify and implement cost-effective projects. They can also access any funding you may be eligible for.

Energy audits

If you want your business to make better use of energy, our energy audit is an invaluable tool. An energy audit evaluates how energy is being used, and identifies the energy and cost-saving opportunities. We’ll even help to fund your audit.
