Greening Kimpton

Low Carbon Workspaces are offering match-funded grants of up to £5,000 to help SMEs in Hertfordshire to subsidise the cost of upgrading equipment to improve energy efficiency, lower energy bills, and improve the overall quality of their premises.

Grants are available to SMEs based in Hertfordshire and all eligible projects must result in a quantifiable reduction in greenhouse gas emissions – don’t worry, the Low Carbon Workspaces team can calculate this for you!

Grants are available to help fund up to a third of the cost of energy-saving projects such as LED lighting, heating upgrades, insulation/glazing, and solar panels. The grant scheme aims to be as flexible as possible.  A package of measures, perhaps due to an office refurbishment, can be supported within a single grant application.

Examples of Eligible projects include:

  • Lighting Systems
  • Renewal Energy systems
  • Equipment Upgrades
  • Heating and Cooling Upgrades
  • Waste Management
  • Building Fabric Improvements

If your business is looking to fund an energy-saving measure that is not mentioned above, please contact the team to discuss your potential project.

The programme has already awarded grants to more than 200 businesses in Hertfordshire.

‘Greening Kimpton’ is a community-led initiative with the sole aim of supporting local people and businesses in reducing energy consumption and waste.

Working together as a team, we will choose and carry out some small but significant challenges that will result in:

  • saving us money and reducing energy consumption and waste
  • a healthier and happier future for the people of Kimpton, Blackmore End and Peter’s Green

The Greening Campaign is not exclusive to Kimpton. In fact, it has been successfully rolled out across over 200 communities up and down the country.
