Low Carbon Skills Fund (LCSF)
Public Sector Funding for energy efficiency and decarbonisation.
Phase 3 of the Low Carbon Skills Fund (LCSF) opens on the 15th of June. The Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has made up to £14 million available to support public sector bodies in developing plans to reduce their carbon emissions relating to heating. The LCSF scheme will provide financial support to help approved applicants to create or improve their Heat Decarbonisation Plan.What is a Heat Decarbonisation Plan (HDP)? It is a plan that describes how an organisation intends to replace fossil fuel reliant systems with low carbon alternatives (e.g. Heat Pumps). The plan explains what actions are going to be taken, over what timescales, and the intended outcomes. It is possible that you do not have either the resources or the skilled personnel needed to complete a HDP. If that is the case, you can apply for funding to either produce the whole plan or to appoint specialist help to your organisation to create that plan.
The LCSF fund enables public sector organisations to access grant funding to help them produce a HDP. All applications will be considered and there is no minimum or maximum grant value. Funding is awarded on a first come, first served basis, so it is really important to submit your application as soon as possible once the scheme opens.
Do not wait to start your application – it is a detailed form, and you may need help. Inspired Energy can support you through the application process and help to answer any questions.

Already have a Heat Decarbonisation Plan?
The Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS) provides funding to public sector bodies that already have an investment-grade Heat Decarbonisation Plan for the implementation of their heat decarbonisation projects.
The Phase 3b application window is planned to open in September with an exact date expected to be published in July 2022. A timeline of both schemes is shown below:
