Public sector decarbonisation scheme


The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has launched the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme which will be delivered by Salix. The Grant Scheme will offer £1bn of grant funding which aligns with BEIS’ new mission and priorities: fighting coronavirus, backing business, unleashing innovation and tackling climate change. The scheme will also encourage green investment, supporting the Government’s Net Zero and clean growth goals.

The scheme will be available for capital energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation projects within public sector non-domestic buildings, including central government departments and arm’s-length bodies in England, and will deliver the following objectives:

  • Deliver stimulus to the energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation sectors, supporting jobs.

  • Deliver significant carbon savings within the public sector.

The scheme allows public sector bodies (PSBs) including eligible central government departments and their arm’s-length bodies to apply for a grant to finance up to 100% of the costs of capital energy-saving projects that meet the scheme criteria.

Key dates for applications to be submitted by are outlined in the Application Guidance Notes here.  Salix welcomes applications to be submitted as soon as the project scope is designed and approved by the eligible body.
