New Renewable Heat Grant Scheme for SMEs in Scotland

Dan Gates


The Scottish Government has launched a cashback (Grant scheme) for Renewable Heat and energy efficiency projects for small & medium enterprise (SME) businesses. Administered by Zero Waste Scotland, Luths Services are available to conduct initial assessments on their behalf. If you want to get in touch we can help with the process. 

The 75% cashback is only available if the SME is not going to access RHI funding.

Energy minister Paul Wheelhouse said: “We recognise that SMEs often do not have the resources available to invest in energy efficiency and renewable heating measures, an issue that has been compounded by additional financial pressures caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“We have already supported thousands of businesses to make the most of renewable heat and energy efficiency measures through financial support and access free advice.

“Through this new cashback scheme SMEs could receive up to £20,000 of Scottish Government support, helping businesses invest in their future by improving energy efficiency, reducing energy usage and ultimately increasing their competitiveness.

“This investment is part of our ongoing action to reduce emissions from heating our buildings and to support a green economic recovery from COVID-19.”
