£1 billion available in public sector funding for decarbonisation schemes
Social Housing providers are rightly expected to take care of their tenants’ properties and help upgrade them to tackle fuel poverty and reduce carbon emissions.
But what about the Housing Associations own buildings?
Well what if you could access up to £1bn of government money to introduce renewable heating or upgrade your air conditioning to increase energy efficiency and lower running costs in your offices?
That’s where the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS) can help. Introduced at the end of September 2020, this £1 billion scheme has been set up to help public sector bodies to fund energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation measures as part of the Chancellor’s ‘Plan for Jobs 2020’ commitment.
The aim of which is to boost the UK’s economic recovery from Covid-19 as well as the Government’s net-zero and clean growth goals, supporting up to 30,000 skilled jobs in the low carbon and energy efficiency sectors.
Overseen by the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and delivered by Salix Finance, applications are currently open for public sector bodies to avail themselves of the fund, with the deadline for applications on January 11th 2021 – although projects do not have to be completed until September 2021.
Up to 100% grant funding can be applied for by eligible bodies for projects which meet the compliance criteria and there is no minimum or maximum grant value. All applications will be reviewed by Salix Finance on a case by case basis.
