North Lanarkshire Energy Audit Voucher

Support provided by UK Government Levelling Up - NOT ONBOARDED North Lanarkshire Council UK Shared Prosperity Fund (NOT ONBOARDED)

What does this involve?

The Energy Audit Voucher (EAV) grant is for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in North Lanarkshire with fewer than 250 employees. The grant helps businesses carry out an energy audit to get information on how to optimise energy usage, reduce costs and improve the sustainability of your business operations.

Businesses can use the grant to engage an expert to do an audit of their premises, operations and manufacturing processes. The audit will help determine your current energy use and recommend actions to reduce or replace your existing sources of energy. It may also suggest you modify your processes and apply interventions that can help reduce energy cost in the short and longer-term.

The programme aims to help address rising energy costs and energy use, and their impact on climate change.
