Government want your ideas to help SMEs save energy.
As part of the Spring Statement, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy has launched a call for evidence entitled the ‘Energy Efficiency Scheme for Small and Medium Sized Businesses’.
This call for evidence proposes three options for possible delivery of the scheme and asks for views on: energy efficiency action, a business energy efficiency obligation and expanding access to finance options to SMEs. It also invites views on any additional delivery models that the government should consider for the new scheme. Over time the aim is to reduce businesses' energy bills and carbon footprint.
Elmhurst Energy’s Technical and Operation Director Stuart Fairlie welcomed the call for evidence and “promises to share its response with members in order to stimulate thought and encourage others to respond with their own thoughts”.
The call for evidence will run for 8 weeks and close on the 8 May 2019.

We would encourage respondents to respond via the Citizen Space platform
