The Zero Carbon Communities Grant Scheme is a pioneering scheme launched last year by South Cambridgeshire District Council (SCDC) to support community action on climate change. Round two of the Zero Carbon Communities Grant was recently launched and SCDC will provide funding for a variety of projects and services which will include improvements to community buildings to reduce the need for fossil fuel energy. By providing energy efficiency support packages for community buildings our applicants with receive expert advice on how to reduce their building's energy consumption. Applications for our grant scheme will be received from non-profit groups or organisations based in South Cambridgeshire or benefiting South Cambridgeshire residents; or South Cambridgeshire parish councils. If applications to our grant scheme for Community Building Energy Surveys are successful, we will require a supplier to provide a cost effective, flexible, high quality and value for money energy efficiency support package to cover all aspects of the building energy use, including: • Insulation and airtightness • Lighting efficiency, illumination levels and control • Heating and hot water generation, distribution and control • Ventilation and air-conditioning • IT, office and catering equipment • Staff behaviour change We are requiring the following to be included in the energy efficiency support package: • A supplier to provide an on-site visit to a community building and undertake an energy audit to identify energy efficiency opportunities. • A detailed, bespoke Energy Efficiency written report presenting the survey findings about the community building and any recommendations for energy efficiency improvements. • Written report to include: indications of costs, energy/carbon savings and payback times, information about grants and other financial incentives available to reduce capital costs of upgrades and/or offset running costs. . A quotation should be based on an energy efficiency support package to any small to medium sized community building within the District of South Cambridgeshire. As building sizes vary, we would like the quotation to indicate what size of building the quote is based on.
