Energy at work

We are working to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions in Leicester. This involves a number of initiatives taking place throughout the city.

Businesses have a large impact on these targets, and we're dedicated to working with them to help them achieve this.

Climate change and energy costs are having a real impact on businesses and a business can benefit from increasing resilience to the rising energy costs. By focusing on energy efficiency, a business can reduce energy use, reduce energy bills, improve the overall efficiency of the businesses and help protect them from rising energy costs. These measures will improve a business’s bottom line and their green credentials, therefore improving their potential supply chain opportunities.

Have a look at the links above to see what measures you can take.


Green BELLE is a European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) project being run by the Leicester Energy Agency, which assists SMEs in Leicester and Leicestershire to cut their CO2 emissions and reduce their energy bills.

The project will be running for three years, until September 2019. However, the grants are awarded on a first-come, first served basis - so apply now to avoid missing out.
