Funding available to organisations includes:
FOR SMES: CARBON TRUST LOANS
In the last financial year, the Carbon Trust gave over £70m in interest free loans to UK businesses replacing old equipment with more energy efficient versions. These loans should save a total of 148,000 tonnes of CO2 each year. Eligibility is primarily for Small or Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) but larger businesses can also apply if they do not qualify for participation in the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme. Ask a Brookvex ECO advisor for more information.
FOR LARGE CORPORATIONS: LEASING COMPANIES & BANK FINANCE
A number of leasing options are available for the larger corporations with over 250 employees and/or an annual turnover exceeding €50m (approximately £43m). As a guideline, the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme typically includes businesses with an annual electricity spend greater than £500,000.
