Energy efficiency surveys and grants
Grants and free energy audits are available to help small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) in both Derby and Derbyshire to reduce business costs, carbon emissions and increase the comfort of employees.
Grants of up to £15,000 (and up to 65% of the cost) are available to eligible businesses to carry out energy efficiency improvements. Energy efficiency support for improvements to either premises or process equipment could include:
- air conditioning
- energy efficient equipment or renewables.
The energy audit is available to SMEs in Derby and Derbyshire. Grants are available to SMEs providing 90% or more of their income is business-to-business (trade sales). SMEs are defined as companies with less than 250 employees and either a turnover of less than 50m Euro or a balance sheet total of less than 43m Euro. They must be no more than 25% owned by a company that isn't an SME.
Some industries such as primary agriculture and retail (provision of goods and services to the general public), social welfare and education, banking and insurance are not eligible.
