Peterborough Environment City Trust has become a key partner in the recently launched Eastern New Energy (ENE) programme. The environmental charity is overseeing part of the ENE's Grant Scheme, which aims to help catalyse capital investments in energy efficiency initiatives.

Businesses can apply for a grant of up to 25% towards the cost of installing light-emitting diode (LED) lighting, solidifying their eco-friendly credentials and reducing operational costs simultaneously.

Antony Gough, Grant Scheme project manager for Eastern New Energy said: "Lighting can be a significant portion of a business’s energy bills, but we can support eligible businesses in applying for a grant to help implement effective energy efficiency measures.

"Our funding pot is limited and only available for a fixed period of time, so we’d urge businesses to get in touch to find out if they are eligible, so they don’t miss out."

ENEs funding comes from the England European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020. The programme is led by the University of East London, with a wider partnership comprising 23 organisations.
