Funding for SME’s: The Green Business Fund

Green Business Fund

Funding is the most common barrier to implementing energy efficiency projects. If this sounds familiar, take a look at the Green Business Fund . It’s now offering to fund up to 30% of the total project cost or £10,000 for energy efficient equipment upgrades and refurbishments and most projects that deliver energy savings will be considered under the scheme.

Free funding

This offer is open to SMEs in England, Scotland and Wales but is time limited, so act quickly. The capital contribution does not have to be repaid but all technology installed has to be sourced from a supplier currently listed in the Green Business Directory. Suitable projects would could also be considered for tax relief using the Annual Investment Scheme and Enhanced Capital Allowance Heat scheme.

The fund is supported by the Carbon Trust. If you have a project that you think could be supported by this fund, please contact CBEN for more details. We will tell you if the project meets the fund requirements, check the potential savings and advise you on how to prepare your application forms.
