Project Profile
Gloucestershire Target 2020

Gloucestershire Target 2020

Gloucestershire Target 2020 is funded through the European Structural and Investment Fund. The project offers up to 5 days energy efficiency consultancy to 200 Small and Medium sized businesses (SMEs) in Gloucestershire. The grants will contribute a maximum of 35% towards energy saving measures and could be worth £500 to £20,000.

The programme is called Target 2020 – Countdown to a Low Carbon Economy. The programme takes a holistic approach to energy use within a business. One of Severn Wye’s business energy advisors will work closely with each business throughout the process. Each business will have:

  • Historical energy data analysed.
  • An onsite energy survey and report produced.
  • Results of the survey presented to management.
  • Help creating an action plan broken down in to no cost, low cost and capital cost measures.
  • Staff energy awareness training.
  • Help to identify potential installers and quote analysis
  • Up to 35% funding towards at least two energy saving measures.
  • Publicity through the programmes dedicated website and case studies.

Energy efficiency measures that can be supported include (but are not limited to):

·       Lighting and controls

·       Boiler replacement and controls

·       Insulation

·       Free cooling

·       Variable speed drives

·       Process equipment

·       Renewable energy production

The programme is open to SMEs who are based in Gloucestershire, but due to funding restrictions the following sectors are excluded from this programme: synthetic fibres, textiles and clothing, motor vehicles, shipbuilding, coal and steel, agriculture, food processing and retail*.

*Retail may be able to receive the consultancy, but not the grant.
