Funding of £230m announced under Phase 3C of Government’s Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme
04 September 2023

The further funding for the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme has now been announced.

The Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme provides grants for public sector bodies to fund heat decarbonisation and energy efficiency measures.

Phase 3 of the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme, worth £1.425bn, was launched by Salix Finance on behalf of the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero in 2021.

For Phase 3c of the scheme, an additional financial year of funding has been granted, which will enable Phase 3c projects to deliver across two financial years. Phase 3c has up to £230 million available in 2024/25.

This scheme continues its task to reduce fossil fuels and make public buildings more comfortable and efficient to warm, and ultimately to help trusts in their journey to net zero.

Categorisation of soft sector caps (divided by Health, Education and Other) has been implemented to this phase of funding to ensure a more balanced distribution of funds across sectors

The Application Portal for Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme Phase 3c is expected to open in the autumn and details will be circulated to our members in due course.
