Interest-free loans for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in Wales.
The Carbon Trust is proud of the significant support provided to Welsh businesses since 2003, with over 700 loans provided and notable investment in energy efficiency and energy cost savings.
Over the last few years, we have seen a slow but consistent decline in loan applications. In response to this, we have taken the difficult decision to close down the Energy Efficiency Loan Fund in Wales. As of Wednesday 31 March 2021, we are no longer taking new applications for loans, and the Energy Efficiency Loan Fund has closed.
While no new loan applications are being accepted, we will continue to manage any outstanding loans until they are fully repaid.
The Carbon Trust is committed to supporting businesses in Wales with the transition to a low carbon economy. You can find a range of free tools, guides and resources at www.carbontrust.com/resources.

The service provided by the Carbon Trust was crucial in ensuring robust outcomes to the district heat studies. Ultimately the Carbon Trust’s services are contributing to making the realisation of operational district energy networks in the Leeds City Region more likely.
We needed an objective and independent assessment of our organisational climate change strategy, plus key recommendations to make improvements – this is exactly what we achieved with the project.
The Carbon Trust’s expertise and collaborative approach enabled us to cut through the complexities of science-based targets and develop reduction targets tailored to our operations. This analysis will form an essential part of Landsec’s sustainability strategy going forward.
We have worked closely with the Carbon Trust over a number of years and we are pleased to see our collective efforts come to fruition. Our broader sustainability agenda has developed from energy efficiency in our operations, to carbon, renewable energy, water and waste reduction, through to our supply chain goals.
By working with the Carbon Trust to better understand the lifecycle impacts of our biopolyethylene bags we can be confident that they are in fact carbon neutral, which helps us to provide our clients with a more sustainable product.
