Announced in 2020 as part of the Chancellor’s ‘Plan for Jobs’ commitment to supporting the UK during the Coronavirus Crisis, the £1bn Energy Fund is being setup to carbon emissions from businesses as well as supporting the delivery of the government’s net zero and clean-growth goals in the public sector.
The fund is aimed to deliver stimulus to the energy and heat decarbonisation sectors, supporting jobs, and to deliver significant carbon savings within the public sector. Applicants are asked to outline the grant start date and grant end date. Projects should aim to be completed before 30 September 2021.
Who is eligible?
Central government departments and their arm’s length bodies (set out in Public Bodies as published by the Cabinet Office). For central government departments where their roles are reserved (i.e. not devolved to Scottish or Welsh Governments or the Northern Ireland Executive), funding may be used for estates located anywhere within the UK.
