Business Energy Efficiency (BEE Anglia)

What is the Business Energy Efficiency (BEE Anglia)?

The BEE Anglia programme provides free support to eligible organisations to help them become more energy efficient. Small and medium sized enterprises all across the country are eligible for a surprisingly large number of grants designed to give them a boost in their overall energy efficiency. The grants have already invested more than £1.5m into more than 240 businesses across the two counties. Funds have supported everything from community centres to factories to restaurants and shops, with technologies from insulation to solar panels and electric vans.
