Businesses in Cambridge can apply now for up to £10,000 grants to help reduce their energy consumption, save money and improve their productivity.

Cambridge City Council is launching the Cambridge Green Business Grants scheme to help businesses in commercial premises in the city that are registered for business rates.

The grants can be used for improvements such as better insulation, energy management systems, solar photovoltaic panels, low‑energy lighting and water-saving measures. No ‘match-funding’ is expected, though businesses may choose to top up the grants with their own money for larger carbon-saving projects.

Businesses are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. Applications providing all the necessary details will be assessed as they are received. Although the application deadline is 11 March 2022, the scheme may close earlier, once all the funding has been awarded.

Grants will be paid to successful applicants by 31 March 2022 and recipients will need to complete the improvements within the following year.
