Energy efficiency grants can help businesses fund their BEMS projects


An energy efficiency grant can help businesses fund their building energy management systems projects and replace their old equipment in order to enjoy more control over their heating systems.

This is exactly the type of funding grant launched by The Carbon Trust as part of their Green Business Fund, a national scheme to provide money and support for smaller businesses to replace their old equipment.

Companies can apply for a contribution to cover up to 30 per cent of an energy efficiency or equipment replacement project.

The money can be used to help buy a range of equipment, including energy-efficient lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning and energy efficiency controls.

The scheme also offers energy saving training and cost saving assessments, along with expert advice to boost the efficiency and productivity of new equipment.

Hugh Jones, a managing director at the Carbon Trust, said: “Our experience of working with thousands of companies across the UK indicates that year-on-year savings of 20 per cent to 30 per cent can be delivered through action on energy efficiency.”

HeatingSave Building Energy Management System (BEMS) helps improve energy efficiency for companies of any size

Replacing your central heating clock with a HeatingSave energy and boiler management controller is the quickest way of beating those tariff rises and saving on energy costs, often paying for itself in less than a year but almost always in less than 3 years.

HeatingSave can cut your energy usage by 20% to 30% with its energy management control, as its internal microprocessor constantly calculates and improves the efficiency and savings of your central heating system.

Using HeatingSave, simply choose the room temperature and the hot water you want, and when, and HeatingSave does the rest. It works with all central heating systems – oil, gas or coal – and links up with a PC to produce reports and graphs to fashion a powerful and complete energy management system.

The system is backed by the Carbon Trust and the Energy Savings Trust.
