Revolving Green Fund 3
We have allocated £21 million to 43 universities, funding 37 small-scale programmes and 10 large projects. The large projects are listed below and further details, including payback period by project type, are available.
LED lighting is the most popular type of project followed by pipework insulation. RGF3 projects will reduce carbon emissions by around 20,000 tonnes per annum, representing 2.5 per cent of the sector’s 2020 carbon reduction target.
