Green Business Grants: Now Open!

9 Jul 2019

As part of the West of England Low Carbon Challenge Fund, the West of England Combined Authority has a £1 million Green Business Grants fund to help small and medium sized businesses improve their energy efficiency.  This is part of their commitment to achieving clean and inclusive growth.

How much grant is available?

Cashback grants of £1,000-£15,000 per business are available to cover 40% of eligible costs.  You can also get a free energy survey if you need one.

What can the grant be used for?

  • Capital works to improve the energy efficiency of buildings, such as insulation, heating, lighting and glazing;
  • Capital purchases and their installation costs to improve the energy efficiency of your business operations, such as more efficient equipment.

How do we apply?
