Salix enables public sector organisations across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to take a lead in tackling climate change by increasing their energy efficiency. Salix provides 100% interest-free capital for the public sector to reduce their energy costs by enabling the installation of modern, energy efficient technologies and replacing dated, inefficient technologies.
To date, Salix has funded over 14,400 projects with 1,460 public sector bodies, valued at £462.9 million. This has saved the public sector over £116 million annually and £1.7 billion over the projects' lifetime. In the future, this will reduce public sector carbon dioxide emissions by 613,793 tonnes annually and over 8.6 million tonnes over the lifetime of the projects.
