Road to Net Zero Business Support Programme 

The Road to Net Zero Business Support Programme is a pilot initiative designed to pro-actively pivot business support and grants on a net zero future, building business advice expertise, and developing a portfolio of tested interventions which can be rolled out further in future.

The Net Zero Challenge Fund enables the programme to support a small number of flagship projects at 100%. We are seeking fully costed proposals for activity and/or technology pilots to be carried out between early June and 30th September 2022. The Challenge Fund is designed to bring innovative/creative ideas and the testing of technologies in the private sector to help solve public sector net zero challenges. For more information please visit the tenders page here.

We are no longer accepting applications for the Road to Net Zero grants due to the high volume of enquiries already received.

Road to Net Zero grants will support Norfolk and Suffolk businesses to access grants from £1,000 to £25,000 for projects that will deliver carbon saving reductions.

This is a pilot project, funded by the UK Community Renewal Fund from HM Government.

The grant can contribute up to 75% of eligible project costs.

Projects can be wide ranging and include, but not restricted to, energy efficiency, clean energy, supply chain engagement, behaviour change/education, reducing waste.

The scheme will also help create and enhance a business’s decarbonisation plans.

There is a limited pot of funding available, so we are looking for businesses to bring forward investment projects that will have a significant impact on their business, and grant applications will be considered by the panel on “first-come, first-served” basis.

The projects must be completed in full by 30 April 2022 so we are looking for projects that are ready to proceed immediately and are not dependent on planning or any other permissions and which have confirmed delivery and completion dates.

Examples of projects can include, but are not restricted to:

• Heating e.g., Biomass, ASHP/WSHP etc. but not fossil fuel alternatives
• Electric commercial vehicles*
• Solar Panels (building regs and planning permission may apply)
• Creation or enhancement of decarbonisation plans
• Further specialist consultancy


The grant cannot fund any projects that have been completed or commenced in any way. You must not make any orders or pay deposits until you have been notified of the outcome of your application.

Businesses must have been actively trading for a minimum of 12-months to access the grant funding.
