Grants, Financing & ECA’s
Money-saving initiatives to help fund your energy efficiency project!
Through the Carbon Trust’s Green Business Fund, we can help small and medium businesses in England, Scotland and Wales to secure up to 30% capital grants and funding for projects they deliver. Your organisation could be entitled to a grant of £10,000 towards the cost of your energy-saving project, helping you to become a more efficient and greener business.
This direct funded support is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Our partnership with DLL, a tier 1 financial solutions provider, allows us to offer you tailored finance solutions for funding energy efficiency projects. By having a structured finance solution, you can benefit from upfront tax recovery and tax deduction on Enhanced Capital Allowances. Finance can be secured on the energy solution and NOT the business.
Enhanced Capital Allowance’s (ECA’s)
ECA’s are a straightforward way for businesses to improve cash flow through accelerated tax relief. The ECA Scheme for Energy Saving Technologies encourages businesses to invest in energy-saving plant or machinery as specified on the Energy Technology List (ETL) managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. The ECA scheme allows businesses to write off the whole cost of equipment against taxable profits in the year of purchase.
