The North East Lincolnshire Council led programme, Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire, is offering businesses the opportunity to learn from world renowned experts.

The Be ‘Business Smart’ Masterclass, being held on 10th March 2021, will focus on how to ‘future proof’ your business to save money and carbon.

The masterclass is being led by an award-winning team from The Institute of Material Flow Management (IfaS) based in Germany. Their expertise and research focuses on energy and resource efficiency.

This a great opportunity for businesses to learn how they can improve on heating and cooling systems, lighting, and explore other technology such as solar PV.

Alongside the masterclass, eligible businesses can benefit from a free energy audit and 1 to 1 technical support from IfaS. Also included is £500 of funding that can go towards an energy saving product. For larger energy saving projects there is a 38% grant you can apply for, but these are reviewed on a case-by-case basis due to limited funding available.
