Salix Finance has confirmed that Digarbon – the new decarbonisation fund for the tertiary education sector in Wales – will open its Applications Portal for new loans on Tuesday 2 July.

Salix has also published further documents to help those eligible for Digarbon to complete their applications.

This new scheme provides £20m of loan funding for further and higher education institutions in Wales to support the implementation of heat decarbonisation, energy efficiency, renewable, and electric vehicle and electricity vehicle charging infrastructure measures.

The loan funding will be delivered by Salix Finance (the organisation which already administers many of the UK and devolved Government energy schemes). An interest rate of 2.05% will be applied to the loans.

The documents, including Application Form, Counter Fraud documents, Authorising Official document as well as application portal questions, can be found in the Digarbon area of Salix’s website here.

These resources are in addition to the existing information which includes scheme guidance notes, slides, FAQs and Digarbon welcome video.

Applicants are encouraged to start to prepare their applications in advance of the portal opening on Tuesday 2 July. The portal will close on Thursday 8 August.
