What is the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme?
The Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS) is a funding initiative that supports public sector bodies in achieving their sustainability goals. The funding is delivered in the form of grants and can be instrumental in promoting a greener, more sustainable future by utilising heat decarbonisation and energy efficiency measures.
Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme Guidance
The window for applications to Phase 3C of the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme is opening very soon (Autumn 2023) and we want to help you prepare ahead of this deadline, inevitably optimising your chances of a successful application.
These are some of the types of projects you can access the funding for:
- Implementing Energy Conservation Measures to reduce consumption
- Updating Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems to minimise unnecessary energy usage
- Installing an energy management system such as Hubgrade in order to have greater control over your organisation consumption
- We can support you to take a holistic approach to implementing Energy Conservation Measures across your entire organisation, taking into account the needs of different buildings and sites.
Decarbonisation Success Stories
Veolia partnered with the 459 bed Eastbourne District General Hospital in one of the first projects to take on a whole building approach by using wide ranging energy upgrades to target carbon savings of 4,129 tonnes.
This was achieved by: Replacing cladding, replacing fossil fuel heating with a low-carbon electric system and installing solar arrays to generate energy.
