Low Carbon Across the South & East (LoCASE)

The Low Carbon Across the South and East (LoCASE) programme is supported by the European Regional Development Fund to provide a free business support programme in the South and East. The aim is to help your business to become more competitive and profitable while protecting the environment and encouraging low carbon solutions.

To do this, LoCASE provides grants for businesses of up to £20,000 as well as training workshops and fully funded events. Targeted business support is on offer for companies who offer “green” or low carbon goods and services.

This funding is available until Spring 2023.


Free Energy Surveys for Small Businesses

Are you a small business worried about rising energy prices?

Energy Alton is offering free, independent and tailored energy advice to small businesses across East Hampshire. Energy Alton is a social enterprise run by volunteers that has been running a successful free home energy advice service for the past 10 years - which has now been extended to small businesses.

Trained volunteers are available to carry out free energy surveys at business premises. They will look at how a building could be improved to reduce heat loss and suggest a range of solutions, from draught proofing to insulation.

The survey will also cover advice around heating systems, hot water appliances and lighting plus how ventilation could be upgraded to reduce the risk of damp and condensation. It is followed up with a written report which details all the ways in which energy costs can be reduced plus information on installers and funding.

For more information or to arrange a free survey, email, call 07811 462 659 or visit Energy Alton.
