Business Energy Support Promoting Opportunities and Knowledge for Energy Efficiency (BESPOKE) is a Derby City project. It is financed by the European Regional Development Fund and Derby City Council.

Free advice and grants of up to £5,000 are now available for businesses to help to pay for measures that:

  • cut costs
  • save energy
  • reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

How can BESPOKE help our Business?

If you are a Derby based manufacturer or provide a business-to-business service and have 250 employees or fewer, then you could qualify for:

  • up to two days of free one-to-one energy efficiency advice to help you identify improvements to save you money on your utility bills, create energy policies to influence staff behaviour and help you implement better monitoring and controls on your energy use.
  • a grant of up to £5,000 for energy efficiency improvements.

The grant can be put towards more efficient machinery, or equipment that will help you to save energy and reduce carbon emissions.

Previous grants have helped to install:

  • energy efficient lighting systems and controls
  • biomass boilers
  • wall and roof insulation
