Phase 4 Public Sector Low Carbon Skills Fund

Salix talks you through Phase 4 Public Sector Low Carbon Skills Fund.

Webinar slides

Please see below our presentation slides from our most recent Phase 4 Public Sector Low Carbon Skills Fund webinars.

Additional resources and examples

Please see below various additional resources and examples that will support Applicants in developing heat decarbonisation plans and detailed designs. 

These resources may be useful to Phase 4 Public Sector Low Carbon Skills Fund applicants and grant recipients when developing their application and in delivering projects. These are for guidance only. 


RIBA Plan of Work

The RIBA Plan of Work is the definitive model for the design and construction process of buildings. The RIBA Plan of Work organises the process of briefing, designing, constructing and operating building projects into eight stages and explains the stage outcomes, core tasks and information exchanges required at each stage.

CIBSE AM17 Heat pump installations for large non-domestic buildings (2022)

CIBSE AM17: Heat pumps for large non-domestic buildings (2022) provides and consolidates best practice guidance with the aim of supporting high quality design, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of large heat pump systems.

Salix tools and resources 

We have created a series of tools and resources to help you work your way through your decarbonisation journey. These guidelines are suitable for anyone looking to start an energy efficiency or decarbonisation project and needs to plan their work.

Public Sector Decarbonisation Guidance

Energy Systems Catapult alongside the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero and the Government Property Function, has developed guidance on design and feasibility work for public sector decarbonisation. The suite of tools, templates and checklists includes guidance to help public sector organisations consider their overall decarbonisation solution.

This eligible technologies list from the Phase 3b Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme offers a list of energy efficient technologies. 


Heat Decarbonisation Plans

We have provided examples of heat decarbonisation plans, produced in Phase 3 Public Sector Low Carbon Skills Fund.  

We hope these allow applicants to gain an understanding of what a heat decarbonisation plan could look like, whilst recognising that plans for different organisations will be different. For this reason, we recommend referring to the heat decarbonisation plan guidance alongside the examples provided. 

Design schematics

The following are real examples of schematics which illustrate an existing heating system alongside the proposed new heating system developed under the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme. 

Heat pump data sheet examples

Here are examples of data sheets which reflect the type of style Salix would expect to see from successful applicants' data sheets upon completion.
