With climate change and energy efficiency a hot topic in the news at the moment, businesses are invited to learn more about how they can be more sustainable and reduce their carbon outputs at a free energy efficiency workshop at the e-Space North business centre in Littleport, Ely on Tuesday 11th June, 8.30-10am.
The breakfast event is being hosted by the Business Energy Efficiency (BEE) programme, in partnership with Enterprise East Cambs.
Businesses will hear from industry experts who will provide an overview of the business case for investing in energy efficiency, explaining the importance of measuring, monitoring and managing energy use, highlighting best practice with key industry examples and exploring the grant funding opportunities available to your business to make significant cost and carbon savings.
Since the (BEE) programme launched in Spring 2017, the programme has supported over 200 SMEs, identifying cost savings of over £1.2million and potential carbon reductions of over 6,000 tonnes.
Using funding secured from the European Regional Development Fund, BEE offers grant funding up to £20,000 in financial support for a number of measures including; LED Lighting; Heating & Cooling; Insulation; Solar PV & Battery Storage; and Electric Vehicles.
The project is being delivered by the environmental charity PECT, in partnership with Nwes.
Businesses are urged to contact BEE before 31st July, whilst funding is still available.
