Can you get insulation grants for businesses?

Despite there currently being no specific insulation grant schemes for businesses available through  government funding nationally, there may still be other avenues for funding you might not be aware of that we can help you with. For this reason, it is always worth contacting us as we can put you in touch with energy experts and installers who will have knowledge and expertise of any relevant funding opportunities when you are considering energy efficient insulation for your business.

What about local opportunities for funding?

At a time when energy bills are at unprecedented highs, more and more entrepreneurs and businesses in the UK are looking for ways to make themselves more energy efficient. Doing so can help businesses save significant amounts on energy bills and reduce carbon emissions, meaning they will be more environmentally friendly and lessen their carbon footprint impact.

With that in mind, a number of local councils and authorities across the country have different grants and incentives in place that will help businesses receive grants for energy efficient improvements like insulation. You can find a few examples below:

  • Business Energy Efficiency Anglia– this funding helps businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk to reduce their carbon impact. Improvements can include lighting and heating upgrades and shifting to the use of electric vehicles and more energy efficient machinery.
  • Low Carbon Workspaces– provides match-funded eco grants ranging from £1,000 to £5,000 for businesses to install green initiatives such as double glazing, smart heating and more efficient lighting. It is available to SMEs based in Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Milton Keynes, and Northamptonshire.
  • West of England Green Business Grants– this supports SMEs in improving the energy efficiency of their buildings and general business operations. This helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and will help businesses save money. You can apply for up to £15,000 per business to cover 50%-80% of the eligible costs.
  • Low Carbon Lake District Grants (Cumbria)– these grants are for businesses looking to reduce their carbon footprint. Qualifying SMEs will be awarded up to 60% of the project costs, up to a maximum of £20,000.

What types of insulation can you get?

When it comes to grants for free insulation for business, the type of insulation your premises may need are dependent on the actual commercial building itself. Loft insulation, cavity wall insulation, external wall insulation, room in roof insulation, are just some of the options, but these may not be relevant to all business premises.

Commercial properties are rated for an Energy Performing Certificate (EPC) on a scale of A to G, with G being the lowest possible rating. Since 2018, the MEES Regulations require that any commercial properties being rented under new tenancy agreements must have an EPC rating of at least E, and this is where insulation can play a significant role. 

Some of the main business insulation options include the following:

Cavity wall insulation

Before looking into cavity wall insulation grants for businesses you need to consider if it is suitable for the building where your company is situated. Not all buildings will have a cavity wall or if it does not meet certain criteria, you won’t be able to have this type of insulation installed. However, there are many other insulation options available that could be right for your business and help you save money on your energy bills as well as make your operations eco-friendlier.

Loft insulation

As previously mentioned, there are no specific loft insulation grants for small businesses but there could be other funding options available if this is the right type of insulation for you. Having loft insulation installed is a quick and easy process and can have significant benefits, including bill savings and carbon reductions, for your business going forward. So, it is worthwhile contacting us to check what type of loft insulation funding could be an option for you.

There are several options for the type of insulating material used during the process, including insulation batts and spray foam, so contact us today for more information regarding opportunities for business grants for insulation.
