Thorite - A bit of help in the Black Country

Wednesday 27th February 2019

It is an unfortunate fact that every industrial process has a cost and energy usage which represents one of the largest costs. For a number of years, staff at Thorite have been working hard to promote products and systems to customers that save energy and therefore costs. And by using various initiatives such as air audits, we have been able to show customers that they can save thousands a year by buying into the latest energy saving Capital Equipment.

There is though, still the cost of the Capital Equipment in the first place and that is why last year, Thorite successfully applied to become a Carbon Trust Accredited Supplier. Through the Carbon Trust it is possible to access grant funding towards the cost of new energy saving machinery.

However, there are other grant funding schemes available and Thorite has recently started working with Low Carbon Workspaces in the Black Country the area that encompasses Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell and Walsall. If you are a small to medium-sized enterprise with no more than 250 employees you can apply to Low Carbon Workspaces for a grant of up to thousands.

The application process is simple enough. If you are looking to purchase an item of capital equipment such as a compressor, we will contact Low Carbon Workspaces on your behalf and they will assist you in completing the application. The application is then viewed by a Grant Panel who will provide a decision within five days.

Low Carbon Workspaces is EU funded and offers 33% grant funding for energy efficient projects. This scheme can be used by businesses alongside a Carbon Trust grant. The current funding will run until September 2019 and although Low Carbon Workspaces is funded by the EU, it is not compromised by the UK leaving the EU.
