The D2EE project is the winner of the East Midlands Energy Efficiency Awards 2018 and 2019.

They work with your business to improve energy efficiency and reduce operating costs. Support is available until October 2019.‌

Free energy surveys

A Project Officer will visit your business and carry out a basic energy audit to identify measures to improve energy efficiency at your premises. Surveys and technical support is available for both Derby and Derbyshire eligible businesses.

Grants for energy efficiency

Grants are available for eligible businesses within Derby city.

Derby SMEs can apply for grants of up to £15,000 towards the cost of energy efficiency measures in their premises (the grant can cover up to 65% of the cost of the work). This could include more efficient lighting, insulation, heating/cooling systems, compressors, motors, process equipment or renewable energy.

Energy efficiency support

Additional support to help businesses to become more energy efficient may be available if a grant is not applied for. For example, further advice on reducing energy use, advice on equipment and staff behaviour change training.
