The Green Business Fund is an energy support service for small and medium sized companies in England Wales and Scotland, which provides up to £5,000 capital contribution - when replacing older equipment with a new system of higher efficiency.
How to apply
Applicants must use equipment supplied by a company like Daikin, which is listed on the Green Business Directory.
An application needs to be made by the end user; however the application is usually put together by the contractor on their behalf.
The Carbon Trust will evaluate the application which must show a reasonable reduction kW/h within a 5 year payback period, through the purchase and installation of new and more efficient equipment.
The decision is mostly made based on the completion of a spreadsheet which outlines the current and proposed system running power input. As a guide, the following information should be provided:
- Equipment selection (preferably a VRV Xpress file if for VRV and ideally a VRV E-Tool reference)
- Some application specifics such as:
- Type of application
- Number of hours per day / days per week / weeks per year the equipment will be running
- Area being served by the system in m2
