Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS)

Energys Group supplied and installed LED lighting at more than 70 locations, with a total project value of around £6m.

Project overview

First announced in September 2020, the UK Government’s Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS) entailed a £1bn fund being made available for public sector energy reduction projects. An unprecedented initiative in recent UK history, the scheme also heralded some huge challenges for those hoping to secure grants, who had less than four months to submit their applications from the date of the announcement.

The primary objective of PSDS was to help decarbonise heating. This meant all applications had to include a heat decarbonisation plan or an element of heating decarbonisation. The scheme also made funds available for other energy efficient technologies that can make a real difference to carbon and energy cost reduction – including LED lighting.
