Submitted by Salix on Mon, 10/08/2020 - 17:46

Salix is pleased to share that we anticipate a new round of SEEF will be opening in autumn 2020. 

More details will follow on this shortly, however in the interim, here is some information below on the SEEF fund for those that are new to the process.  

What is SEEF? 

Salix works in partnership with the Department for Education (DfE) to deliver the fund with the aim of reducing the energy usage through the installation of energy efficient technologies, so that academies can lower their energy bills and create more comfortable learning environments for students and staff.  

The Salix Energy Efficiency Fund (SEEF) is available for all individual academies, academy sixth forms, free schools and those in Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs). 

What are the benefits of SEEF? 

  • Opportunity to lower energy bills and reduce the carbon footprint of your academy 

  • Newer technologies create a more engaging learning environment for both staff and pupils 

  • Over 100 technologies eligible for funding  

  • No upfront cost to the academy - the interest-free funding is paid and repaid to the DfE based upon the predicted energy savings 

  • SEEF repayments return to the DfE and are recycled to fund further projects in the public-sector 

How do I apply? 

There is support for applying in the guidance document for all details regarding the SEEF application process.

Please note that the SEEF application forms will not be available until Autumn 2020 and the guidance may be subject to change.
