Through a range of partners
Energy efficient solution is able to help
you source funding to support
investment in innovative technology or training
Some funding streams are quite unique, eliminating the stress on cash-flow that investment can cause. Once funding has been secured, repayments are calculated so that they are aligned with the actual savings made on utility bills. Once all capital costs are repaid, all financial benefits are then retained within organisation. It is important to remember that energy efficiency solutions can be delivered without capital investment, using positive cashflow solutions.
Return on Investment
Organisations measure their Return on Investment over different time scales. Energy efficient solutions Partnership will only offer possible solutions that fit within these timescales, along with any other parameters the organisation has.
The Carbon Trust no longer offers interest free loans but is still in operation and has funding available by Siemens Finance at competitive rates of interest. It is generally an easy loan to obtain. The payments are still offset against your savings and so you are normally in a positive equity situation. www.carbontrust.co.uk
Enhanced Capital Allowances (ECA)
This scheme is designed to encourage businesses to invest in low carbon technologies and is run by the Carbon Trust on behalf of DEFRA and the Inland Revenue. The ECA scheme enables businesses to write off 100 % of their first year capital investment in energy saving technologies against their taxable profit for the same period of the investment. www.eca.gov.uk
