Energy Efficiency

There are grants available to Black Country SMEs looking to improve the energy efficiency of their business and implement energy-saving solutions. Businesses can apply for all, but unfortunately you can’t use more than one grant for one individual purchase.

We also offer procurement support for larger businesses looking to cut their energy bills.

For more information on heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, download this Introductory Guide from Carbon Trust, which explores the main energy saving opportunities for businesses and demonstrates how simple actions save energy, cut costs and increase profit margins.
