Community Sustainable Energy Programme

Energy Efficiency

If you wish to apply for a capital grant, your building/s must already have suitable energy efficiency measures in place as without these relatively low-cost but energy-effective improvements, the benefits of high cost microgeneration technologies may not be fully realised.  At the very least, you will be required to carry out an energy efficiency "walk-round".  The Carbon Trust has produced a fact sheet (CTL003) to show you how to do this.  This can be found on their website

For all energy efficiency measures, you must seek suppliers and installers through reference to the relevant trade bodies as above.
