Demonstrating value is the number one priority of any publicly funded organisation. Limited budgets and conflicting priorities can restrict spending that doesn’t immediately impact frontline services. But ageing and inefficient energy estates can cause energy wastage and avoidable spend. Most worryingly, it could put patient care at risk.

New, low-carbon energy technologies help public services to improve both environmental and financial sustainability. And with several funding schemes available, you can invest in your net zero future without the need for upfront capital.

Supporting all parts of the Public Sector

We deliver integrated energy solutions across all parts of the Public Sector, with specific focus on:

Healthcare
Having committed to becoming the world’s first net zero national health service, we can help the NHS to bridge the gap between national decarbonisation targets and actions for individual trusts or hospitals. All this, while ensuring your energy solutions are economically viable and safeguard patient care.
Education
We help provide safer, healthier, and more productive higher education learning environments, while reducing carbon emissions and energy costs. Our extensive experience in helping to solve the energy challenges in education ensures the maximum return on investments, increased efficiency and reduced carbon emissions.
Central Government
From offices to accommodation, classrooms and more – Central Government has a broad estate, with diverse energy requirements. At the same time, many sites have underutilised real estate. We’ll help you navigate the options that will drive maximum value from your real estate and reduce both your carbon emissions and costs.
Local Authorities
Local Authorities have a unique opportunity to lead the energy transition, by placing decarbonisation at the heart of community. They can also lead by example by investing in low-carbon technologies. We help local authorities implement energy solutions that are both environmentally and economically responsible.
