Salix, in partnership with the Department for Education (DfE), works to reduce energy usage in individual academies, sixth form colleges, free schools, and Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs) across England. Through the installation of energy-efficient technologies, academies can lower energy bills and create a more comfortable learning environment.
The benefits of the Salix Energy Efficiency Fund (SEEF) are:
Reduce energy bills
Improve the learning environment for both staff and pupils
No upfront cost - the interest-free funding is paid and repaid to the DfE based upon the predicted energy savings
SEEF repayments returning to the DfE are recycled to fund further projects in the public-sector.
Salix Energy Efficiency Funding is available for all individual academies, academy sixth forms, free schools, and those in Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs).
The maximum loan value is £200,000, applications can be part-funded if they exceed this value. The minimum loan value is £8,000.
The loan value must not exceed an 8 year payback.
Projects must cost no more than £222 per tonne/CO2e.
How To Apply
The deadline for applications is 11 January 2021.
Applicants should submit proposals using the online application system, available on the Salix website.
Each applicant may submit one application, which can consist of multiple projects. Multi-Academy Trusts can submit one application for each academy within the trust.
