Don’t miss out on big grants for energy efficiency in Norfolk and Suffolk
Written by Tim Greenhalgh
Grants up to £20k
Businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk should not miss out on big grants for energy saving projects – and we can help.
It’s time to act now! Grants of up to £20,000 are available, providing long-term benefits including reducing energy costs and easing pressure on operating costs.
At SMCC, we fully manage funding applications to the Business Energy Efficiency (BEE) programme, taking the stress out of the whole process. We also have finance options that can help you manage your money and implement your energy efficiency plans.
With the right energy efficiency solutions, companies can save thousands of pounds a year with a quick ROI, massively helped by the BEE grant covering a proportion of project costs.
The BEE programme supports eligible organisations in Suffolk and Norfolk to help them become more energy efficient. Its funding comes from the European Union European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
We can handle everything for you
The experienced team here at SaveMoneyCutCarbon takes care of the whole process. We can help you to win grants covering 28% of the costs of an energy-saving project, including detailed energy audits, specification and installation.
Our field services team will conduct a full survey of business premises to identify the areas for energy savings – which also help to reduce carbon emissions. We then fully manage the application process and install the cost-saving solutions. From tap aerators and flow restrictors to eco hand dryers, our team are skilled in finding and setting up the right products for your business.
The BEE funding is available to most Small and Medium Sized Enterprises, which covers most businesses with up to 250 full-time equivalent staff and an annual turnover of less than €50 million (or an annual balance sheet less than €43 million).
BEE insists that any business applying should have a primary enterprise focus, offering goods and/or services on a commercial basis. Eligible organisations would include:
- Unincorporated Association
- Limited Partnership
- Limited Company
- Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)
- Community Interest Company (CIC)
- Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO)
- Industrial and Provident Society (I&P or IPS)
However, BEE rules exclude some business sectors:
- Fisheries and aquaculture
- Primary production, processing and marketing of agricultural products
- Synthetic fibres
- Statutory services; education, healthcare, etc.
- Banking, insurance and other financial services
Your business must have received less than €200,000 of de minimis state aid over the last three fiscal years. BEE criteria apply to the primary business seeking a grant and to any “linked” businesses owned or that have a controlling interest.
