Green recovery scheme is open to applications

Energy Management Ltd is delighted to be involved in a £300 million UK-wide green recovery scheme designed to encourage low-carbon energy projects.

The green recovery scheme is a collaboration between Ofgem and the ENA (Electricity Network Association), who represent all UK DNOs, and is now available for businesses to access.

The aim of this scheme is to deliver electricity distribution infrastructure solutions that will lead to rapid, material development and stimulate economic recovery.

Funds from the scheme will contribute towards the total cost of projects including any electricity network reinforcement works needed to enable low-carbon projects, such as the installation of EV charge points and heat pumps, to go ahead.

Companies interested in accessing funding need to submit their call for evidence prior to the 19th of March 2021 deadline.

To be successful, projects will need to demonstrate how they meet both the Government’s Net Zero objective and the Ten Point Green Recovery Plan.

They will also be assessed to understand their contribution towards improving air quality, creating jobs, and alleviating fuel poverty in local communities.

The scheme will focus on funded projects that can be delivered in 2021 or 2022 to make sure it has an immediate impact.

To find out if you are in an area identified for potential investment under the scheme, please contact your relevant Distribution Network Operator (DNO).
