Public Sector Low Carbon Skills Fund

The Public Sector Low Carbon Skills Fund is now available alongside the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme. This will provide grants to help all eligible public sector bodies to source specialist and expert advice to identify and develop energy efficiency and low carbon heat upgrade projects for non-domestic buildings, before preparing robust and effective applications to the  £1 billion Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme. The allocation of this fund will be based on need. Eligible public sector bodies that do not have the capabilities and resources required to submit an effective and robust application for the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme will be prioritised. The dates for making an application are:

  • Project development support for central government: 30 October 2020
  • Project development support for wider public sector bodies: 04 December 2020

Full guidance and details of how to apply are available on the Salix website.
