What is the Funding For?
The Low Carbon Skills Fund (LCSF) has been developed to help Public Organisations develop a robust Heat Decarbonisation Plan (HDP) that is aimed to help put them in a strong position to take the next steps in decarbonising. The plans will also help them to apply for any future grant funding to assist with the installation of capital decarbonisation measures.
