Please find below information received from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) with regard to the DECC Electricity Demand Reduction Pilot
DECC Electricity Demand Reduction Pilot
Factsheet issued and organisations invited to register their interest
We are writing to request your assistance with disseminating the linked factsheet http://tinyurl.com/pn8rl9b about DECC’s Electricity Demand Reduction pilot to companies and organisations that might wish to register their interest in taking part in the pilot.
Key details are as follows:
- Organisations and companies that might be interested in taking part in the pilot or wish to send comments or questions about it, are invited to write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- At least £20 million is being made available to support projects that deliver lasting reductions in electricity demand, for example, through the installation of a more efficient lighting system, heating, ventilation and air conditioning system or electric pump.
- Applicants will be able to bid eligible projects into an auction for a contribution towards the cost of installing more efficient electrical equipment that then delivers savings – on the basis of £ per kilowatt saved.
- Final pilot rules and guidance will be published in June 2014. Applications will need to be submitted in October 2014, following which an auction will be held. Contracts to successful bidders will be issued in January 2015.
Please could you help to ensure that the factsheet is brought to the attention of companies and organisations that might be interested in applying for funding through the pilot by disseminating it to your members, organisations that you work with and to colleagues – for example, by posting it on your website or Twitter account, by e-mailing it or including it in your newsletter, or by discussing it at relevant workshops and conferences. We would also welcome your sending us information about trade magazines that might be interested in including information about the pilot.
