Tower Hamlets Energy Reduction Programme

The London Borough of Tower Hamlets is investing £185,000 into their Energy Reduction Programme, which is helping 50 local micro-businesses through the energy crisis. Participating companies will become more resilient to the effects of climate change with bespoke energy advice and £2,500 in the form of grants to install energy efficient technology, improving their commercial properties.

Are you looking to future proof your micro-business and cut energy bills?

Here's what you can get...

Expert energy advice and grants

We have 50 free on-site energy audits for local Tower Hamlet’s micro-businesses. A specialist consultant will come to your commercial premises and provide bespoke advice on how you can make your building warmer, dryer and more energy efficient. We’ll then provide you with a £2,500 grant to improve your property and make your company more resilient to future energy price fluctuations and adverse weather events.   

Sustainability workshops

We provide all the information you need to become a green business. From what Net Zero actually means to reducing supply chain emissions, we have you covered.

Cut your carbon emissions

No matter what stage you’re at with carbon reduction, we provide knowledge and support to measure, manage and reduce your emissions. We can help you look at your business carbon footprint or take a deep dive into product and supply chain emissions. Importantly, we’ll help you identify what to focus on so that every action you take will count and make a meaningful impact towards a long term reduction strategy. 

Work experience placements

We are working with local education providers to provide 25 work experience placements with Tower Hamlets businesses. Invest in the future workforce  and host a student at your office/property for 1-5 days a week according to your situation and needs.
