Business Energy Efficiency Project (BEEP)
Between 2016 and March 2023, BEEP supported Small to Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) across County Durham to generate financial savings and reduce their carbon emissions through energy efficiency and energy awareness.
With support from us and the European Regional Development Fund, BEEP provided a fully funded and independent audit to identify where financial savings can be made. The project also provided SMEs with funding to help reduce the costs of energy efficient installations.
Through the project's lifespan, over 500 local businesses where supported contributing towards the countywide net zero target 2045, by reducing carbon emissions by over 1500t.
The project is currently being reviewed and developed to make sure more County Durham based businesses can be helped to reduce their carbon footprint and energy costs. You can still apply for a fully funded energy audit to see how much you could save, see Climate Change County Durham: energy audit.
