£4m for councils' energy efficiency loans

The Carbon Trust has made £4 million available to part finance 8-10 local authority energy efficiency funds.

Selected authorities will receive grants of up to £500,000 which they will have to match. The fund will finance loans to improve energy efficiency in parts of the authority's estate such as schools, libraries, street lighting and leisure centres.

The Trust hopes that repayments of the loans can then be recycled into a self-sustaining fund managed by the local authority.
