The Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS) provides grants for public sector bodies to fund energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation measures.
The £1 billion scheme is part of the Chancellor’s ‘Plan for Jobs 2020’ commitment to support the UK’s economic recovery from COVID-19, supporting up to 30,000 skilled jobs in the low carbon and energy efficiency sectors. The scheme will also support the government’s net zero and clean growth goals. It will reduce non-traded carbon emissions from the public sector by up to 0.1 MtCO2e/year and up to 0.5 MtCO2e over each of Carbon Budget 4 and Carbon Budget 5. This is equivalent to taking nearly 45,000 cars off the road.

The Public Sector Low Carbon Skills Fund will provide funding for developing bids and delivering projects.
