About SME Energy Efficency Scheme: Information Session for Suppliers

Are you a supplier of energy efficiency or renewable energy equipment to Tees Valley SMEs? 

Did you know about Tees Valley Business’s SME Energy Efficiency Scheme and associated grant? 

SMEES supports Tees Valley SMEs with fully funded, independent energy advice using our in-house team of technical specialists to identify ways to save energy. A 45% grant is available to encourage the adoption of more expensive measures with capital costs of between £10,000 to £100,000, subject to significant carbon savings being made.

The normal route to access a grant is for SMEs to receive an energy audit and work with our technical specialists to implement a range of recommendations, some of which may be grant funded.

This information session aims to brief the supply chain so that they can understand the grant scheme and give clear, accurate information to their customers*.

*At all times the beneficiaries of SMEES are the SME businesses with a Tees Valley trading address.
