£20m Salix Scottish fund and 8 years payback

4_sfc-logo-200px-opt - Peter Hawtin - peterh

The Scottish Funding Council (SFC) has launched a £20m University Carbon Reduction Fund for small and large energy efficiency projects. It is administered by Salix and the deadline is 31 October. Unusually for Salix, because of the SCF’s involvement, that is a firm deadline. Full details.

Salix now funds projects 3448_sidebyside-salix-hefce - John Treble - johnwith payback periods of up to an 8 years and a maximum cost of £200 per tonne of carbon dioxide saved.

We have carried out “Salix-focused” energy audits for several universities and will be pleased to help you to identify new projects for Salix, recycle existing Revolving Green Funds, or spend any cash that “unexpectedly” becomes available.

In April 2018, the Office for Students (OfS) is replacing the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and the Office for Fair Access (OFFA). The OfS will not be involved in promoting the reduction of carbon emissions which the Government regards as purely a matter for individual HEIs.
