As part of the Scottish Green Public Sector Estate Decarbonisation Scheme Salix will continue to offer funding to eligible public bodies in Scotland via the existing Scottish Public Sector Energy Efficiency Loan Scheme.

This loan scheme offers zero interest loans to the public sector to enable them to undertake spend to save retrofit energy efficiency improvement projects to help them towards achieving net zero carbon in their estates.

The available funding allows Salix to offer up to 75% of the total compliant project value along with increased payback criteria (subject to technical review and due diligence).

Applications and expressions of interest are welcome now. 


Funded by the Scottish Government, we have been working with the public sector in Scotland since 2006. Our clients have invested over £45 million in energy efficiency projects in Scotland to date, which is forecasted to save the public sector more than £129 million over the lifetime of the projects. For a summary of our work in Scotland, click here.

We can offer loans to all of the Scottish public sector which are subject to the Public Bodies Duties in the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009. This includes 32 local authorities, universities, and some non-departmental public bodies.

We are continuing to work with clients to receive new applications and are keen to work with organisations as they develop and deliver on their carbon management plans. We are looking to build long term relationships in Scotland and are available for meetings on request.

Project criteria in Scotland are up to a 10 year payback at a cost of £278 per tonne of CO2 over the lifetime of the project on all new loan agreements. To download the full application notes for the Scottish SEELS Loan Programme, please click here.
