Facilitation of Energy Project Investment in Local Authorities

Energy action plans  require investments, and often local authorities face energy project funding constraints; to overcome these constraints and maximise the gains made from energy savings, an innovative solution to funding future energy upgrades was established.




The programme offers a solution to the local authority struggling to gain investment in energy projects. It adds a structure to energy project assessment with performance indicators and financial models. This innovative funding solution operates such that the Energy Conservation Budget is utilised with an internal Energy Performance Contract (EPC).
