The funding is available for over 120 energy-efficiency technologies and is repaid from the savings made on energy bills.

Once a form is completed, this should be submitted alongside supporting information through the application page on our website.

Salix provides 100% interest-free capital for the public sector to reduce their energy costs by enabling the installation of modern, energy efficient technologies and replacing dated, inefficient technologies. It has worked with over 100 Higher Education Institutes and supported over 4,000 projects since 2006. HEIs have utilised over £135 million of funding for energy-efficiency projects, estimated to save more than £37.5 million and 190,000 tonnes of carbon each year. With this new round of funding, Salix will continue to enable this work to be undertaken at HEIs.

Over 120 energy efficiency technologies can be funded including combined heat and power, LED lighting upgrades, laboratory upgrades and ICT improvements. The full technology list can be found here.

If you would like to find out more about energy-efficiency technologies and how these have been implemented at HEIs and across the public sector, you can find project knowledge slides and other useful information in our Knowledge Sharing Area.
