Business energy and grants

Our aim is to get the county to net zero carbon by 2030. Local and national grants are available to help businesses and community groups reduce their carbon footprint or improve their energy efficiency. Business support groups can help with signposting and supporting applications for funds.

The Marches Energy Grant (MEG) offers free advice, energy assessments and grants for energy efficiency and renewable energy measures to SMEs from all sectors in Herefordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin. The funding is also available to support community buildings.

Assessments are for SMEs who wish to use their energy more efficiently, reducing costs and improving environmental credentials. Grants worth up to £20,000 are available for eligible businesses. Read more and submit an expression of interest
