Target 2030 is a business energy efficiency project that aims to support small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire to achieve a change in their energy consumption, putting them on a more sustainable footing for the future.
The service is funded through the European Regional Development Fund and delivered by Severn Wye Energy Agency, a Gloucestershire sustainability charity with over 20 years of experience supporting local businesses.
The programme aims to support over 300 Gloucestershire SMEs and 90 SMEs in Swindon and Wiltshire, offering two branches of support:
Free energy efficiency survey
A free energy efficiency survey from one of Severn Wye Energy Agency’s expert Business Energy Advisors, along with an analysis of historical energy bills and a detailed energy action plan report highlighting the key points and recommendations.
30% grant funding towards improvements
Following on from the survey you’ll be able to apply for partial grants towards installing recommended energy efficiency measures. Grants are in the range of £500 to £60,000. The grant is subject to meeting a minimum carbon saving and covers 30% of the cost of purchase and installation.
