Decentralised energy support
Decentralised energy projects can generate lasting cost and carbon savings, and protect against future energy price rises. They can also deliver broader social objectives such as ensuring security of supply and addressing fuel poverty.
The Carbon Trust’s support is primarily focused on developing heat based projects, such as a CHP plant serving a commercial building; a waste-to-energy system using household refuse or industrial waste as a source of fuel; or a gasification plant burning sustainable biomass. This service helps public bodies to determine the best technical solutions, project governance and finance options for district heating networks and decentralised energy schemes, and also assists with intelligent procurement and market engagement.

We can work with you at all stages of your low carbon new build or retrofit housing project. Our aim is to identify cost effective methods for reducing energy use and carbon emissions from housing, and to create homes which are healthy, comfortable and affordable places to live.
We are experienced in working with public and private sector clients. We work with local authorities and social landlords to upgrade their housing stock and tackle fuel poverty. We can support property developers, contractors and suppliers in their delivery of resource efficient housing and communities.

Frameworks we are on
Buy For Good – a Community Interest Company, awarding locality based contracts and frameworks, (Purchasing Agreements), for use by the public, Third Sector and private sector organisations. The framework aims to deliver continuously improving social, economic, and environmental benefits to the community and the buyer. Purchasing Agreements are awarded in full compliance with the EU Procurement Directive and negate the need for public sector buyers to run their own EU compliant procurement exercise.
Essentia Strategic Energy Advisory Framework – This framework is open to any public sector body in the UK, and covers the provision of M&V services, energy audits, and strategic advice on energy reduction and ESCO measures in large public bodies.
