Finance For Sustainable
Energy Projects

There are a wide variety of renewable energy finance schemes and initiatives available for domestic users and commercial organisations wanting to embrace the benefits of natural energy, and gain some control over their own energy needs and use.

Energy Gain can provide you with help and advice on what’s available to suit your particular project, and help you apply for renewable energy finance if required.

The following is by no means an exhaustive list of everything out there, but it will give you a feel for what’s available.

CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme – a mandatory reporting and pricing scheme to improve energy efficiency in large public and private organisations.

Enhanced Capital Allowances (ECAs) – let businesses that invest in certain energy-saving equipment write off the total cost of it against their taxable profit as a 100% first-year capital allowance.

Climate Change Agreements (CCAs) – give energy intensive organisations a discount on the Climate Change Levy (a tax on energy use in industry, commerce and the public sector) as long as they meet government-agreed efficiency improvement targets.

The Green Deal – lets businesses and other non-domestic organisations pay for some or all of the cost of energy-saving property improvements through savings on their energy bills over time.

Combined Heat and Power – simultaneously generates usable heat and power in an efficient, signel process, allowing for the use of by-product heat that would otherwise be wasted. For many organisations CHP offers the most significant single opportunity to reduce energy demand.

Salix Finance – is a government-funded scheme that provides interest-free loans to public sector organisations for energy efficiency improvements.

Energy Gain can now offer Solar PV finance for many domestic installations.

Please get in touch for help and advice about schemes that may help you as an individual or an organisation.
