Flexible funding models are available for Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs), energy efficient technology upgrade, and renewable energy projects alike.
Although customers can be deterred by upfront capital investment, these fears are managed via a selection of funded solutions, all of which can be delivered with guaranteed savings. We recognise the importance of funding options as well as the need for guaranteed results, which is reflected in the range of solutions we make available to our clients. Choosing the right, most appropriate source of capital (including self-funding) will be a function of project type, client sector, technology life and the particular financial policies of the customer; whatever the mix, we will discuss and determine the right option. UK Energy Partners have designed, financed, and delivered energy efficiency technology upgrades for over one hundred organisations in both the public and private sectors since 2012.
