Green Energy Scheme & Guide
Our commitment to renewable energy sources goes beyond carbon emissions; it’s about harnessing the power of nature to drive positive change. Energy is a key area of focus and the Linen Quarter BID has partnered with Power NI to roll out a Green Energy scheme to members with 100% renewably sourced electricity. The government recognises that traditional energy sources contribute to environmental degradation and has introduced a law to reduce carbon emissions to Net Zero by 2050, meaning it’s now essential for your business to consider how to reach this target. There’s no extra cost to switch and you will receive a Green Energy certificate, and window display sticker.
Power NI also offer a free online account management tool which allows clients to track electricity usage, carbon emissions and spend. Larger users can also invest in a more comprehensive solutions such as Connect 360, a real time data-driven energy and environmental monitoring solution. This allows businesses to measure and manage a range of processes to become more energy efficient. The NISEP (Northern Ireland Sustainable Energy Programme) offers 20% funding for businesses who switch to energy-saving solutions such as LED lighting or intelligent heating controls. To find out more, please visit Power NI website.
The LQ is made up of a diverse range of public and private sector organisations, hospitality, professional services, charities and retail. To get sector-specific advice, the Carbon Trust have energy efficiency advice to suit each member’s needs.
A switch to green energy helps your business and our district meet ESG reporting and Net Zero government targets as well as promoting the area as sustainable business district to clients, customers, tourists and investors. Linen Quarter BID members can speak to Power NI’s Linen Quarter Account Manager, who will help you complete the switch.
