Our Core Funders
BEIS (formerly known as DECC) works to make sure the UK has secure, clean, affordable energy supplies and promote international action to mitigate climate change. BEIS's predecessor, DEFRA, established Salix in 2004 with the view to ensuring the public sector in the UK has access to interest free capital loans to increase energy efficiency. Since 2004, BEIS has provided a total of £148m to Salix for the funding of energy efficiency loans and for the funding of its operations.
The Department for Education is responsible for education and children's services. Through DECC, DfE have provided Salix with £10m of funding in order to increase energy efficiency across English schools.
HEFCE distributes public money for higher education to universities and colleges in England, and ensures that this money is used to deliver the greatest benefit to students and the wider public. Salix with HEFCE has invested over £20m in the university sector, enabling £37m of energy saving projects saving £11m annually, reducing CO2 emissions by 65,000 tonnes annually and 875,000 tonnes over the projects’ lifetime
