Low Carbon Barrow Grants



Are you a small- or medium-sized business, charity or community group based in the borough of Barrow-in-Furness?

Want to improve your energy efficiency or interested in renewable energy? New Low Carbon Barrow grants could help you take action for our climate.



About the grants

Low Carbon Barrow grants is a European-funded support programme to help small- and medium-sized businesses, charities and constituted community groups improve their energy efficiency and environmental performance. Grants of up to £10k are available to help businesses across Barrow-in-Furness to reduce carbon emissions, and do their bit towards a zero carbon Cumbria.

Low Carbon Barrow will award around 25 grants across the borough – from Ireleth to Walney, and from Askam to Lindal. The programme will support low carbon investments by businesses from a range of sectors including hospitality, retail, manufacturing and transport.

Once assessed by a panel, successful organisations will need to meet a percentage of the projects costs, and provide evidence to the funders. Our Low Carbon Grants Lead will guide you through the application process, helping with questions about eligibility and how projects should be planned and delivered.


For example

A charity that spends £1,800 on changing all of its lighting to LED could claim back a grant of £1,200 for the costs.

A small business investing £24k in an air source heat pump with new insulation could apply for up to £10k in grant funding.
