Cut your energy bills with a free energy audit and funding
The OxFutures Project is offering free energy audits to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to identify energy saving opportunities. The audit will suggest a range of practical actions that will reduce energy, carbon, and cut costs for your organisation.
The project is also offering grants to cover 25% of the costs of installing recommended measures such as LED lighting, insulation, efficient heating and temperature controls.
Replacing inefficient lighting, boilers, or windows or insulating your building can have an immediate impact on your energy spend.

What is involved in the energy audit?
Oxford Brookes, as a partner in the OxFutures project, will carry out a thorough energy audit on your building. The assessment will consider the actions needed to reduce your energy use and create repeated savings for your organisation. Many are at ‘no’ or low cost and are easy to implement. Audit recommendations will be presented with estimated installation costs, financial savings and pay-back-periods, so you can prioritise which measures you want to fund.
A range of actions may be recommended such as:
- Insulation and draught proofing
- Efficient boilers and heaters
- LED lighting
- Powering down appliances
- Staff engagement / behavioural change
- Battery storage.
Is it really free?
OxFutures is offering the energy audits free of cost to your organisation, but the 12 hours of professional expertise is worth approximately £1,600.
Save energy, money and carbon
Improved energy efficiency can result in reduced energy bills, reduced core overhead costs, and reduced impact on the environment for your organisation.
Improve your facilities
An energy audit can result in other great benefits – from better lighting to improved comfort for staff, visitors or volunteers as a result of a warm and draught free building.
