Your one stop shop for decarbonising public estates

Our public sector organisations have big ambitions when it comes to achieving Net Zero – but one of the biggest challenges they face is decarbonising their own buildings.

Many public sector buildings still rely on fossil fuel heating systems or were built in much less energy efficient eras.  

To help public organisations decarbonise their estates the NEY Net Zero Hub has produced a toolkit to guide you through some of the key aspects and processes.

The toolkit will guide you through the steps required to develop and implement a Heat Decarbonisation Plan and provide practical advice on applying for Public Sector Decarbonisation Funding.
