VCSE Energy Efficiency Scheme

Active Derbyshire, Active Notts, Funding, News

The VCSE Energy Efficiency Scheme will help voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations (VCSEs) to deliver more efficient services for people and communities by saving money on their energy bills.

The VCSE Energy Efficiency Scheme is offering independent energy assessments to help identify energy-saving opportunities in your building.  The scheme is also offering capital grants to implement measures recommended in your assessment.

Applicant organisations must be a VCSE delivering frontline services.

The scheme is funded as part of a package of over £100 million of support being delivered by the Government to help frontline delivery organisations with the increased cost of living.

Use their eligibility checker to see if you’re eligible to apply for the cost and delivery of an Independent Energy Assessment (IEA) or a Capital Grant. 

If eligible, grants of between £2,000 and £150,000 can be used to install capital energy efficiency measures, identified in your IEA, to reduce your building’s energy costs and support the delivery of your frontline services.
