Low Carbon Workplaces


Low Carbon Workspaces grant scheme helps businesses reduce their carbon emissions. Grants are available from £1,000 - £5,000 to help fund a third of the cost of projects at commercial premises that result in a reduction in energy usage or carbon emissions. Just some of the projects that the scheme can fund are: 

  • LED lighting
  • Efficient boilers
  • Air-source heat pumps
  • Insulation/glazing
  • Solar panels.


Projects funded by the scheme are a great way for your business to decarbonise, and save money on utility bills, helping you to achieve your net zero goals.

How the grants work...

Grants cannot be paid retrospectively so it is essential to follow the application process before undertaking work or appointing suppliers. For full details or to ask the team any questions, visit www.lowcarbonworkspaces.co.uk or email info@lowcarbonworkspaces.co.uk

Go green and reap the benefits of a grant

Often one of the biggest barriers to moving further forward with major energy efficiencies is the cost of technology. With a match-funded grant of between £1,000 - £5,000 you can recover up to a third of the cost of many different energy-saving measures reducing the upfront cost and the time to recover your investment.

The programme is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and HM Government.
