Public sector green grants on offer

Grants of up to 1 million per site are available for managers of public sector buildings adopting renewable energy technology.
The Department for Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform BERR and Building Research Establishment BRE are to host regional events to promote the grants available under phase two of the low carbon buildings programme (LCBP2).

The first of these events start at BRE's headquarters in Watford on April 29.

Schools, hospitals, housing associations, local authorities and charitable bodies can benefit from the LCBP2 grants. The funding can be used for the supply and installation of any combination of the following microgeneration technologies:

solar photovoltaics
solar thermal hot water
wind turbines
ground source heat pumps
automated wood pellet stoves
wood fuelled boiler systems

From April 1st, 2008, grant caps were increased to 50% across all technologies, bringing them in line with the funding available for solar PV funding.

In total, seven regional events will take place in May and June. Speakers from programme funder BERR, and BRE, which is managing the scheme, will explain the application process, the microgeneration technologies involved, installation, energy output and the potential for reducing carbon emissions and energy bills.
