Business Energy Efficiency project provides grants for SMEs in the East

The BEECP programme provides free support to eligible organisations in the Greater Cambridge and Greater Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnership area to help them become more energy efficient.

This support not only has the potential to reduce your operating costs, but in turn could also help your business become more competitive, aid business growth and strengthen resilience.

We will provide you with a single point of contact; supplying helpful support tailored to your business.

Through BEECP, we can offer your business access to a range of funded services including onsite energy reviews, grant support for energy efficiency projects and specialist technical consultancy such as feasibility studies.

Since the Business Energy Efficiency (BEE) programme launched in Spring 2017, the programme has supported 97 SMEs to identify cost savings of over £550,000 and potential carbon reductions of over 2,650t. That’s the equivalent of 535 flights from London to Sydney!

Using funding secured from the European Regional Development Fund, BEE offers a free audit service to help small and medium sized enterprises identify energy saving opportunities. Businesses who look to invest in capital projects to improve energy efficiency can access a grant scheme offering up to £20,000 in financial support.

The project is being delivered by the environmental charity PECT, in partnership with Groundwork and Nwes. To find out more and to register your interest, please visit www.beecp.org, email info@beecp.co.uk or call 01733 882549.
