Warwickshire businesses to become greener thanks to new service

Leamington Editorial 18th Feb, 2024   0

THE FUTURE is looking greener for Warwickshire businesses thanks to the launch of a new energy advice service.

The Warwickshire Business Energy Advice Service is designed to support the creation of a greener and more sustainable economy through the promotion of energy efficiency.

It has received funding from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and is a branch of the £4.6million Business Growth Warwickshire Programme, developed and commissioned jointly by Warwickshire County Council, North Warwickshire Borough Council, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, Rugby Borough Council, Stratford District Council and Warwick District Council.

The WBEAS package of support offers businesses in Warwickshire the opportunity to lower energy costs, increase their environmental credentials, enable them to access new supply chains and markets, and take part in peer-to-peer learning and collaboration.

Coventry City Council has been appointed to deliver the service on behalf of WCC and the five district and borough councils.

WCC’s economy spokesperson Coun Martin Watson said: “We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Warwickshire Business Energy Advice Service, a pivotal initiative driving our county towards a green, sustainable economy.

“Through strategic collaboration and the support of Coventry City Council, we aim to empower Warwickshire businesses to embrace energy efficiency, reduce costs, and unlock new opportunities. Together, we pave the way for a brighter, low-carbon future.”
