Low Carbon SMEs

Funding, Transforming Energy-Saving Business Plans into Commercial Successes

Aston University is delivering a project which seeks to assist small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to reduce their energy use. The initiative is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).     

Low carbon SMEs provide free, expert energy efficiency support and advice to SMEs in the Black Country, Greater Birmingham and Solihull.

Did you know that even low and no-cost actions can typically reduce energy costs by at least 10%? That’s where we can help. Low Carbon SME is a free service that brings together the best academic minds; industrial expertise; and a solid understanding of the low carbon drivers that impact on SME businesses in the region.

Enquire today by emailing and receive valuable support, including:

  • A free diagnostic evaluating your sites’ energy use and process efficiencies
  • A grant of up to £6000 in the GBS LEP the value of which SMEs will be required to match. 
  • One to one advice and innovation support from Aston University academics and industry specialists
