    • Please tell us how much energy is used per year in kWh or L or tonnes. For example if your proposed project is to switch to LED lights please tell us the current energy in kWh used to power your lights. The counterfacual energy consumption is the theoretical standard, so for example if you wanted to heat a new building, the counterfactual might be standard gas boiler and the proposed project might be an air source heat pump. Projects that address resource efficiency are also eligible, for example projects that save water.
    • Please tell us how much energy will be used per year in kWh or L or tonnes. For example if your proposed project is to switch to LED lights, please tell us the estimated energy in kWh that will be used.
    • The payback period is the time until the project will start to pay for itself in terms of the energy saved vs initial cost.
    • Please detail how the project will be managed and what support is required.
