WEBINAR

How to cover the upfront costs of energy efficiency work

In 2020 we hosted a series of webinars exploring topics on the importance of energy efficiency for businesses. If you missed them, don’t worry – here’s the recording of the second in the series.

We know that costs are often a major barrier for businesses to working on energy efficiency improvements – with a myriad of things often competing for precious budget space.

So, in this webinar we explored ways that businesses could overcome the upfront costs of financing energy efficiency improvements with Alex Rathmell, Managing Director of EnergyPro Ltd.

This includes how we can do this as part of the Energy Solutions Oxfordshire service. We’re able to support organisations with low interest loans and other financing opportunities to pay for upfront costs – with the savings made to your energy bills covering the loan repayments

We were also joined by James Andrews of Hitachi Capital, who explained how they are able to finance energy efficiency projects for businesses through low interest loans, giving a couple of examples of when they’ve done this in the past.

Thanks for watching!
