The first round of funding under Phase 3 of the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS) has awarded over half a billion pounds to energy efficiency and renewable energy projects across the public sector estate with a view to saving an estimated average of £650m per year on energy bills over the next 15 years and take further steps towards net zero carbon targets.

The funding announced is the first part of an overall £1,425 billion due to be allocated through Phase 3 over three years until 2025. Guidance on how to apply for the next round of applications – Phase 3b - will be published in July, with the application window planned to open in September.
