Manage business energy and waste

Increased efficiency + reduced waste = lower costs. It’s obvious really.

But what isn’t obvious is how to go about it. We can help. We’ve already helped local companies save millions of pounds through tailored advice, consultancy, industrial symbiosis, resource efficiency grants and interest-free loans.

We provide tailored advice and training on resource efficiency issues and run workshops across Northern Ireland on energy and resource efficiency initiatives. We can also signpost you to online information to help your business implement resource efficiency savings.

Consultancy support

To help your business manage and implement resource efficiency projects, we offer up to five days of free consultancy support. This is available to companies with a total resource spend of over £30,000 a year.

Consultancy support can help with:

  • Developing robust business cases for individual projects
  • Providing project management skills on particular projects
  • Managing the purchase and installation of new equipment
  • Defining equipment and/or process specifications
  • Identifying suppliers of goods and services
  • Encourage collaborative efforts with other businesses in your area around energy

Industrial symbiosis

We provide advice on how one business’s waste or excess resources can be used by other businesses, therefore becoming a development opportunity rather than a problem. This advice is available through workshops or on a one-to-one basis.

Energy efficiency loan fund

The Energy Efficiency Loan Fund is now closed so the scheme cannot accept any loan applications. In the interim please call 0800 181 4422 to discuss your needs. Further details and updates will be published when available. In the meantime we apologise for any disruption.
