Low Carbon Challenge Fund

Low Carbon Challenge Fund is a 3-year programme of support to help stimulate the transition to a low carbon economy.

The aim of the Challenge fund is to accelerate the deployment and take-up of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies in Clay Cross, reducing carbon emissions and stimulating and demonstrating innovation, and ensuring Clay Cross becomes an example of community best practice within Derbyshire.

With this in mind we are considering establishing a Low Carbon Challenge Fund. This could be made available to help local businesses install adaptations such as:

  • Upgrading lighting to LED
  • Installation of solar panels
  • Water recycling
  • Air source heat pumps

We’re keen to hear from Clay Cross businesses of all sizes whether they have given any thought about making changes to help with reducing energy consumption and if funding to help would be of interest.
