Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme
Over the last two years the government has provided Local Authorities and Public Sector organisations with £1bn of funding to replace/upgrade energy technology and equipment within their buildings to decarbonise heating systems, improve inefficiencies and save money.
Throughout this time, Leisure Energy has undertaken initial site surveys, desktop calculations and completed the application forms for 15 Local authorities covering 18 leisure facilities and six other buildings within council portfolios. All of the applications were successful resulting in a total grant award of over £33 Million to fund the decarbonising of the centres.
Installations of equipment includes air source heat pumps, solar panels, LED lighting, pump controls and dosing systems and battery storage.
This funding has been allocated via several phases and will continue to be distributed via Salix Finance, who 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 on page three: https://www.salixfinance.co.uk/knowledge-share/case-studies
Leisure Energy can assist Local Authorities with their application for future grants of decarbonisation funding to implement upgrades at their own leisure facilities.
