Cowan & Co have recently assisted several schools across Lancashire in securing grant funding under the Government’s Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS). The PSDS scheme provides grant funding for public sector bodies to fund various projects which ensure heat decarbonisation and energy efficiency measures.
Our successful projects funded under phase 1 of the PSDS scheme include the replacement of oil tanks with the installation of air source heat pumps and also the installation of new high efficiency boilers. Other energy efficiency measures included within the projects include the installation of solar panels and LED lighting. It is anticipated that long term these projects will enable these schools to save thousands of pounds on their annual building running costs.
The PSDS projects are now well underway on site and are due for completion by September 2021.
A further phase of the PSDS funding is now open for applications. Please contact our team if you wish to discuss whether your school meets the funding criteria and is eligible to apply for this vital decarbonisation funding.
