Taking action to upgrade to more energy efficient equipment or renewable technology can considerably reduce a business’s energy costs.

Finance is available, in the form of an interest free energy efficiency loan, to make these savings a reality for your business.

Last year, Northern Ireland businesses saved over £2.4m on their energy bills using a loan from the Carbon Trust.


Invest NI’s Energy Efficiency Loan Fund – the key features:

  • Interest free and unsecured
  • Borrow from £3,000 to £400,000
  • Loans are designed such that in most cases the monthly energy savings should exceed the monthly repayments
  • No set-up or administration fees
  • Apply now - it only takes 15 minutes

Who is benefiting?

Businesses from all kind of industries are benefiting, including retail, manufacturing, hospitality and food processing firms, the majority choosing to upgrading their lighting, heating or refrigeration technology to achieve these results.

Trevor Kane from Bayview Hotel in Portballintrae explains why he applied for a loan and how it has benefited the business.
