This is the first dedicated business support service within Coventry & Warwickshire that enables businesses to improve their resource or energy efficiency and use of renewable energy. This service includes a green business network to inform SME’s of energy efficiency opportunities in the region and one-to-one diagnostics within SMEs to plan how to improve their energy efficiency.

Grant funding is available to Coventry & Warwickshire SMEs (average £10,000) which will lever over £4.5m in business investment into energy efficiency schemes and developing new low carbon products and technologies, and lead to a reduction of 1,000 metric tonnes in greenhouse gas (CO2 equivalent) emissions.
