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. There are substantial and ongoing business benefits through reduced energy costs, easing pressure on operating costs and building the bottom line.

We fully manage funding applications to the Business Energy Efficiency (BEE) programme, taking the stress out of the whole process.

With the right energy efficiency solutions, companies can save thousands of £s a year, with 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) and now is the time to act as the funds cease in March 2019.

We can handle everything for you

The experienced team here at SaveMoneyCutCarbon takes care of the whole process to win grants covering 28% of the costs of an energy-saving project for any eligible business, from detailed to survey, 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.

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 with 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 so 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
  • Steel
  • 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 and any “linked” businesses owned or that have a controlling interest in the business.

Act now. Deadline for applications is March 31st 2019.
