The Carbon Trust Green Business Fund provides an energy efficiency support service for small and medium-sized companies. It provides fully-funded support through:

  • Energy opportunity assessment – to help businesses identify energy saving opportunities, and to develop a robust business case for the purchase of the appropriate equipment
  • Implementation advice – help with procuring suppliers
  • Workshops – to help small businesses work out how best to identify the energy saving opportunities available to them.
    The Heart of the South West Growth Hub is hosting a workshop in Cullompton on 2 March 2017: Find out more
  • Financial support – a capital contribution of 30% of the project cost (up to a max of £10,000) to small and medium sized businesses, which could benefit from financial support when buying energy saving equipment.
