Salix announces today that Phase 2 Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (Phase 2 PSDS) will be delivered in 2021-22. Government have allocated £75 million of funding and this is available to eligible organisations as grants. Phase 2 PSDS opens as the final funds are being allocated for Phase 1 Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (Phase 1 PSDS). Salix is the delivery partner for this scheme. Applications for Phase 2 PSDS will open on Wednesday 7th April, 2021. The scheme has a set of conditions that are designed to ensure that the policy direction, required by Government, delivers on the agenda for the decarbonisation of heat. To meet the UK’s Net 2050 target, emissions from public sector estate will need to be near zero and the Clean Growth Strategy sets out that public sector emissions will be halved by 2032 compared to a 2017 baseline in order to meet the Fourth and Fifth Carbon Budgets. There are some key differences for Phase 2 that reflect and support the increased focus on heat decarbonisation. Salix wishes to give eligible public sector organisations the scheme criteria before the Application Portal opens on Wednesday 7th April.
