Business Energy Efficiency Programme (BEEP)

BEEP logos

We're offering SMEs in Telford & Wrekin, Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire, free energy efficiency assessments which could lead to grants for businesses who wish to use their energy more efficiently, reducing costs and improving environmental credentials.

Step 1

We assess your equipment, premises, processes and performance to find opportunities for improvements in energy usage.

Step 2

You can then apply for a grant for projects worth up to £50,000. The grant intervention rate is 40%. For example, if your project costs £10,000, your contribution is £6,000 and we provide £4,000.
