Information, advice and guidance, a dedicated energy audit and grant are on offer to businesses in the Bassetlaw District Council area under the UKSPF Business Decarbonisation Programme.

The aim of the grant is to facilitate businesses in gaining a better understanding of their business’ carbon footprint and identify the suitable energy efficiency measures to reduce this. It can also financially support businesses to install energy efficiency measures to support the reduction of the organisation’s carbon footprint.

Micro-businesses only (fewer than 10 employees) whose business premises are located and operate within Bassetlaw District are currently eligible to apply for the two phase grant.

Phase 1

Phase 1 will facilitate businesses creating a heat decarbonisation plan for the chosen asset using an energy auditor to ascertain an in-depth understanding of the business’ carbon footprint and produce the plan.

The energy audit and decarbonisation plan will consist of three parts:

  • Pre-site visit desktop study
  • Site visit
  • Post-visit report.

Information will be collected as part of a building energy audit (BS EN 16247 Part 2) to consider the energy consumption and energy saving opportunities at the building. Attention will be given to the building’s fabric, mechanical and electrical building services, operations, maintenance and occupancy. These will be outlined in the post-visit report and include potential energy saving opportunities. These outcomes will be achieved through external support that is partially funded (up to £1,000) through the grant offered. These saving opportunities can then be used to inform the works carried out in Phase 2. However, although it is highly recommended to complete Phase 1, if looking to take advantage of Phase 2, it is not compulsory.

Phase 2

Phase 2 offers the provision of a grant of up to £2,000 for future spend on energy efficiency measures to support the reduction of the organisations’ carbon footprint. The proposed measures must be supported by a current carbon footprint, cost and carbon savings calculations for before and after installation and a description of how the chosen measure will support the on-going operation or maintenance of the building. This information can be obtained via Phase 1 or have been previously obtained by the business.

To apply for any phase of the grant funding, register via the Expression of Interest form available by email from UKSPF@bassetlaw.gov.uk adding E29 Decarbonisation Programme in the subject line.

Expressions of Interests and Applications will be extended to small businesses (10-49 employees) from 4 September 2023.
