East of England SMEs to get significant funding for low carbon business projects
Eligible SMEs in the East of England region will be able to access investment funds between £25,000 and £75,000 for implementing low carbon business projects under a new scheme that’s just been announced by the Low Carbon Innovation Fund (LCIF), a news report in the local media has revealed.
According to the LCIF, investment opportunities are open to any eligible business in the region that is interested in developing or producing low carbon technologies, products or services, and/or increasing their operational efficiency to reduce carbon emissions.
Furthermore, the Fund claims that their new scheme will offer a streamlined application process, speedy approval and a quick response to any enquiries from interested companies.
John French, chief executive of the Adapt Low Carbon Group, said: “We’re committed to helping SMEs in the region and have identified a real need for smaller investments in the region. Our new Small Investments Scheme is designed to suit start-ups and small companies from all sectors, especially those in the creative industries, who may have limited resources.”
Reducing carbon emissions is a goal that can be achieved in a few different ways, one being the implementation of advanced BEMS (Building Energy Management System) solutions, and this is exactly where the HeatingSave system developed by Tensor might prove its worth, since our solution allows customers to achieve immediately savings of up to 30%+ on their energy bills.
HeatingSave uses a radical new approach to the concept of energy management, since there’s absolutely no need to replace one’s existing boilers, plant of equipment. In fact, it simply retrofits to existing heating systems, replacing where the time clock/BMS was situated, and is comparatively inexpensive and simple to install with a fast payback.
HeatingSave is approved to work and save fuel by the Carbon Trust, The Department of Energy & Climate Change, the Energy Savings Trust and it is OfGem CERT approved.
