We appreciate that certain solutions require initial investment, but our clients quickly reap the financial rewards that the solutions generate. Our aim, wherever possible, is for clients to fund their projects through the energy savings they achieve along the way. For example, by converting a property’s lighting to high-quality LEDs, on average a customer will reduce their lighting energy costs by up to 70% and their total bills by up to 30%.

Another example would be that by improving the EPC/DEC Rating of your buildings, this will not only protect you from future changes, but will also increase its commercial and rental value as well as how lettable it is. We present landlords and developers with an efficient capital investment programme that will enable them to thoroughly understand the financial requirements of achieving future standards and the potential EPC/DEC improvement of their your building after investment. For those looking to consider the purchase of commercial properties for let, we can provide our survey as part of your purchase decision.

Additionally, we will consider any funding streams that may be available to help ease the commercial implications of delivering some of the more complex energy and carbon reduction measures.

All of our options are costed and implemented into an asset replacement pipeline for you to understand future financial requirements, the return on investment they will provide, and potential funding options applicable to your industry. We will also assist with securing correct subsidies and can support our clients with the application of grants where applicable.

Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme

The Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme provides grants for public sector bodies to fund heat decarbonisation and energy efficiency measures. This scheme supports the aim of lowering emissions from public sector buildings by 75% by 2037. The scheme has 4 phases, the fourth phase is the provision of a funding pot of £1.17 billion for public sector decarbonisation to be provided between 2025 – 2028. This was confirmed by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) in February 2024. To learn more about this click here:

Low Carbon Skills Fund

The Public Sector Low Carbon Skills Fund provides grants for public sector bodies to access skills and expertise to unlock heat decarbonisation on their estate. Having a rigorous heat decarbonisation plan will put businesses in a powerful position to take the next steps in decarbonising, allowing them to develop detailed project proposals that will help them to apply for any future grant funding for capital decarbonisation measures such as the Public Sector Decarbonisation scheme. This helps companies think more strategically and be better prepared for future decarbonisation opportunities. To learn more about this click here:
