Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme
During 2021 the government has given Local Authorities and Public Sector organisations £1bn of funding to replace/upgrade energy technology and equipment within their buildings to decarbonise heating systems, improve inefficiencies and save money.
Leisure Energy undertook initial site surveys, desktop calculations and completed the application forms for 9 Local authorities covering 14 Leisure Centres. All of the applications were successful resulting in a total grant award of over £17 Million to fund the decarbonising of the centres. This was recently featured by the Public Sector Sustainability Association https://pssa.info/leisure-energy/
We are currently in the construction phase of these installations of equipment including Air Source Heat Pumps, Solar Panels, LED lighting, pump controls and dosing systems and battery storage.
Salix Finance are the administrator of the PSDS grants on behalf of the Department for Business, Industry, Energy and Industry Strategy (BEIS). One of our projects for Lichfield District Council is being used as a case study by Salix https://www.salixfinance.co.uk/knowledge-share/case-studies.
Leisure Energy can assist Local Authorities with their application for any future grants of decarbonisation funding to implement upgrades at their own leisure facilities.
