The Reducing Energy & Emissions Grant, which forms part of OH CLLD’s Community and Key Project Support programme as set out in their Community Led Vision (398.1kB) (Opens in a new window or downloads a file), will assist businesses and organisations with the costs associated with installing a Catalytic Hydrogen Fuel and Emission Reduction System (Opens in a new window or downloads a file). Successful applicants will receive a 75% grant towards the overall capital costs associated with acquiring and installing the system. A total of £30,000 have been set aside for this purpose.
This grant is intended as a trial that will enable OH CLLD to gather data on how successful the technology is in a range of vehicles and vessels in an Outer Hebrides setting. For this reason, grants will be awarded to as diverse a group as possible, including a geographic spread. In return for the grant awarded, recipients are expected to cooperate by regularly providing data on their fuel and emissions to enable Ecomotus to calibrate their system and the CLLD LAG to track the trial’s success.
Each business or organisation will only receive funding towards towards installing the Catalytic Hydrogen Fuel and Emission Reduction System in one of their vehicles/vessels.
This fund will close on Friday 20th January 2023 at midday.
