Whitfield Clinic in partnership with Veolia will soon submit an application to the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) for Better Energy Community (BEC) grant funding in 2015.
The purpose of this BEC grant is to stimulate the delivery of innovative energy efficiency measures and ease the burden of implementing energy reducing projects by providing 30% grant funding.
The BEC program is open to both public and private parties (e.g. schools and hospitals) and it is our intention to include local schools in our grant application.
We therefore invite interest from local schools that would like to join our community and be involved in this grant application. Working with the local community is one of our key focus areas and this offering from SEAI is designed to bring local clusters together with a view to improving energy efficiency and in turn the environment we all live in.
Is this an opportunity for your local school?
If you are involved with or have a contact in your local school we invite you to make contact with Veolia. John Lambe, Veolia Business Development Manager can be contacted directly by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Veolia will discuss with you the potential offering and framework for the Whitfield application.
Energy efficient opportunities within schools will range from:
This offering can bring significant energy savings to potential members. Veolia can finance energy upgrades and monitor energy savings over the investment period. This funding can provide financially restrained organisations like schools with access to capital and avail of Veolia’s energy management expertise to ensure potential savings are met and sustained for the long term.
To avail of the BEC grant this year, applications will be made by mid- March so we would encourage schools to contact Veolia by Thursday 5th March.
