SMEs in England, Scotland and Wales with up to 1000 employees are being offered funding of up to £10,000 towards the installation of energy efficiency equipment upgrades and refurbishments. The Carbon Trust's Green Business Fund can provide up to 30 per cent of the total project cost.

There is more on offer besides the non-repayable capital contribution. A range of support services, including an energy survey and advice on the implementation of energy saving equipment, is also available. And a Green Business Directory lists Carbon Trust accredited suppliers of energy efficient equipment.

Funding under this scheme is being offered until next March on a first-come first-served basis. You can read more about this topic here.
