LCE are pleased to announce that our clients had a 91% success rate with their Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme 3B application last year, worth £20.4 million.
What is the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme?
The PSDS provides grants for public sector bodies to find heat decarbonisation and energy efficiency measures. These measures are important in helping to reduce fossil fuel emissions whilst making public buildings comfortable, cost-effective to heat and environmentally responsible.
With the urgent need to combat climate change, initiatives such as the PSDS are playing a vital role in the transition to a more sustainable future. This scheme was launched by Salix in 2021, on behalf of the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero. Phase 3 represents a commitment to reducing carbon emissions and improving energy efficiency across public sector buildings.
What are some of the scheme benefits?
1) Helps reduce fossil fuel emissions as well as making public buildings more comfortable and cheaper to warm.
2) For Phase 3c, an additional financial year of funding has been granted which will enable projects to be delivered across two financial years.
3) Ongoing client and technical support on project delivery
When is the application portal open for Phase 3c?
Salix will be opening the Phase 3c applications portal for all applications on Tuesday 7th November 2023 and will close on Friday 10th November 2023 at 2pm.
