Grant Funding from the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme
Applications for grant funding from the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme will be made in partnership with the Carbon Energy Fund to supply renewable heat to NHS Trusts. The Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme, which provides grants for public sector bodies to fund site decarbonisation, opened for applications in September 2022 for low carbon technologies including deep geothermal. Phase 3 of the Scheme will provide £1.425 billion of grant funding over the financial years 2022/2023 to 2024/2025, through multiple application windows. If successful, the funding will enable us to progress these projects through the planning and design phase and bring them to shovel ready stage.
