Target 2030: Support for businesses to tackle their energy use in a low-carbon age
James Clarke from Severn Wye Energy Agency will introduce their Target 2030 grant funding and business support programme, designed to help Gloucestershire SMEs to make improvements that lower your energy bills, reduce your carbon footprint and improve your business’ environmental impact. With such strong emphasis on everyone making progress towards ‘net zero’ – making sure your business is as energy efficient as possible is more important than ever. Without expert support (and some financial incentives) it can be hard for small and growing businesses to keep up. Find out about the support available for your business here in the county.
Entrepreneurs’ Network events are offered by Start and Grow Enterprise, a University of Gloucestershire project with funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Start and Grow Enterprise supports the growth of Gloucestershire-based entrepreneurs and start-ups (trading up to 3 years) through free training, events, networks and resources.
