Energy Price Emergency Grants

The energy price emergency grant scheme is a £1 million fund which will help businesses across a wide range of sectors with the cost of living crisis.

Approval of the Energy Price Crisis Emergency Business Grants Programme, part of the Climate and Environment plan (CEP)’s Business Sustainability Package to provide immediate support to businesses with the cost-of-living crisis (£1,100,000).

CEP Wave 1 will help enable and support wider work to address the Climate Emergency through the delivery of measures that:

  • Tackle fuel poverty and reduce carbon emissions from housing through domestic energy efficient retrofits.
  • Reduce emissions through business sustainability packages, building enhancements to reduce heat loss and increasing green energy through solar.
  • Encourage people and businesses to lower their own carbon emissions and make positive changes.
  • Build climate resilience through investment in natural flood defences, neighbourhood led interventions and making businesses more resilient.
  • Support investment in teaching and learning resources, curriculum enhancements and support individuals to access green jobs and skills.
  • Support communities through a community grants programme, so they are better able to contribute to net zero.
