Smart energy project

Smart Energy, Greater Lincolnshire  is a project created after North East Lincolnshire Council has been awarded £9.2million from European Union, European Regional Develop Fund (ERDF).

The project aim is to promote, innovate and adopt energy efficiency and renewable energy.

£5.4m of the funding from the ERDF is to boost renewable energy use in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), council and other public sector owned buildings in the area.

Along with private sector investment, the funding will set up a one stop shop to provide energy and low carbon services for SMEs as well as facilitating large scale investment in public infrastructure.

Smart Energy, Greater Lincolnshire started at the beginning of April 2018 and will be delivered over three years.

A wide range of measures have been implemented across the sites from LED lights, Solar PV, building management systems, heating systems, insulation to glazing and much more! This will enable us to reduce our energy costs and carbon emissions.

This wouldn’t have been possible without the funding from the European Regional development fund and Salix finance.
