Following TRECO General Manager Carl Young’s participation in the Low Carbon Building Programme Regional Events held across the UK, but particularly popular in Edinburgh where over 100 attended, TRECO is now responding to a flurry of installation quotation requests from North of the Border!
That being the case we have noted the Scottish Government has announced a further funding incentive for companies and district heating projects to switch to Biomass under the Scottish Biomass Heating Scheme (SBHS). However, the closing date for applications is mid February, so if you are based in Scotland then read on….
The £3.3 million Scottish Biomass Heat Scheme is Scotland-wide, funded by Scottish Government, Forestry Commission Scotland and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
The SBHS provides grants for the installation of biomass heating systems in business premises and district heating demonstrators.
The SBHS provides support for small-medium sized enterprises, and is restricted to heat-only biomass applications.
The Scottish Government particularly welcomes applications for district heating demonstrators from private developers. Priority will be given to businesses who are not eligible for other funding streams, such as the Scotland Rural Development Programme.
There is an initial enquiry form to log your interest and obtain further guidance from the SBHS team and early contact is advised to clarify eligibility and outline your project’s scope.
The closing date for applications is the 12th February 2010.
