  • Has not received over £315,000 in subsidies in the current and previous two financial years (financial year being 1 April to 31 March). 

The Energy Assessment is delivered by independent specialists, Pro Enviro Ltd and is fully subsidised. This means that you, the recipient business, will not need to contribute any finance towards it, although the value of the subsidy will be notified to you and taken from our allocation of funds on your behalf.
