From 1st April 2021 the England Salix Energy Efficiency Loan Scheme was replaced by the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS). Salix continues to deliver energy efficiency programmes through the Public Sector Decarbonisation Grants Schemes.
There are two elements to this scheme: Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS) & Public Sector Low Carbon Skills Fund
Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS) offers funding support to public bodies. It allows organisations to upgrade existing heating systems using low carbon technologies such as air source, water source or ground source heat pumps. In previous years, £31 million worth of funding was allocated to the education sector, and we helped to our clients secure over £10 million of this. If you have a heating system you’d like to upgrade, be sure to contact us to discuss your application.
Public Sector Low Carbon Skills Fund (LCSF) is a vital funding resource, providing grants to unlock decarbonisation in the public sector. For organisations that still heavily rely on fossil fuel-based heating, the LCSF is ideal as it enables you to develop energy strategies for more sustainable forms of heating. There is over £14 million worth of funding available, making it a fantastic funding avenue. Phase 3 was announced in June 2022. We can support you with your bid for next round of applications.
The scheme is grant funding not a loan. Salix is now a government agency under the direction of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
In a nutshell, very tight! From our experience we know that the applications to PSDS and LCSF are highly sought after and oversubscribed, hence you must be prepared and ready with all the information required to be `bid ready’.
