The Accelerating Reduction of Carbon (ARC) project aims to help small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) in Greater Nottingham to reduce their energy use and carbon emissions. 

To be eligible you must have:

  • less than 250 employees
  • a turnover of less than £43m
  • be not more than 25% owned by a company that isn't an SME
  • not trading in an excluded sector

The project provides advice, support and grant funding to enable eligible businesses to introduce measures which will reduce their carbon emissions, implement more energy efficient equipment into production processes and adopt renewable energy generating technologies.

The project offers:

1. Free carbon reduction audits

An Energy Advisor can undertake an audit of business premises to identify how a business can reduce its carbon emissions. Recommendations can include energy efficient LED lighting, insulation, improved heating/cooling systems, compressors, process equipment, renewable energy generation, resource efficiency, waste reduction as well as staff behaviour change.

2. Grants for carbon reduction measures

Grants are available to support the implementation of carbon reduction measures for eligible businesses. Grants are available for between £1,000 and £16,000, covering up to 35% of the total cost of works (excluding VAT). The minimum project value is £2,900 exclusive of VAT.

 

Contact the project manager on 0115 876 4271 or david.kelly@nottinghamcity.gov.uk to discuss how the project can help you.
