The Salix Energy Efficiency Fund (SEEF), delivered by Salix in partnership with the Department for Education (DfE), pledges to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and lower energy bills for organisations in the public sector.
Salix is a not-for-profit organisation funded by BEIS, the Department for Education, the Welsh Government, the Scottish Government and Higher Education Funding Council for England.
