Getting The Most Out Of Public Decarbonisation Scheme Funds

View All Catgories

Its all about efficiency

As the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme application process closes, assessors have seen huge numbers of applications reaching a combined value of £1 billion. The funding will support the UK’s climate change goals by reducing carbon emissions in the public sector, the equivalent of taking nearly 45,000 cars off the road.

Also known as the Grant Scheme, the initiative will offer £1bn of grant funding to align with BEIS’ new mission and priorities, including tackling coronavirus, backing businesses, promoting innovation and addressing climate change. Created to encourage green investment, successful applicants will be investing in a number of areas from electrical to HVAC services and will be looking for experienced businesses to help them invest in the right technology.


Which energy efficient technology is eligible?

A very wide range of energy efficient technologies, including LED lighting, are eligible for the funding. However, there is also a significant effort being made to decarbonise heating systems. This means that regardless of the technology applicants choose to buy they will also need to provide a ‘heat decarbonisation’ plan or include an element of heating decarbonisation in their project.

How can we help?

EcolightingUK offers a versatile product range using the latest LED technology, creating bespoke solutions for a number of applications. Over the last 50 years, we have delivered energy efficiency upgrades to hundreds of sites and provided our customers with the added bonus of having an in-house installations division, EcoM&E, to offer them a complete mechanical and electrical service. We can help organisations with:

  • LED lighting – to include emergency lighting, smart lighting and floodlighting for both internal and external applications
  • HVAC systems – maintenance and new installations for existing and new buildings
  • Plumbing services
  • Electrical installations – services include portable appliance testing, wire inspection and testing, fire alarm and emergency lighting testing, data installations, industrial single and tpn power supplies, electrical vehicle charging and general service and maintenance

Why choose EcolightingUK?

Alongside our mechanical and electrical divisions, the majority of EcolightingUK’s business comes through its lighting department.  Here, the main objective is to help companies to save thousands on their energy bills through the straightforward introduction of a new generation of lighting products. Once the energy saving products have been installed, the company will:

  • Save in excess of 70% in lighting energy costs
  • Significantly reduce a site’s carbon footprint and the cost of carbon tax
  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Enhance health and safety in the workplace
  • Increase the productivity of staff
  • Improve operational efficiency.

Unlike many other lighting companies, EcolightingUK has the benefit of having its own team of lighting and electrical installation engineers as well as carrying out the lighting scheme design with Relux software in the early stages of client lighting projects. We also manufacture luminaires in the UK and use UK-sourced Osram control gear and LED chips. All of this means that we have much better control than many of our competitors and can present better value for money to clients. EcolightingUK are also assessed to BSEN ISO 9001:2015 and are members of the Lighting Industry Association.

“It was the energy saving that was the key driver, we only committed to a 50% reduction in energy use, in practice it was nearer 70% resulting in annual savings of circa £70,000, If we had of stayed with the old system, this annual saving opportunity would have been lost forever”
