The Carbon Trust and Siemens Financial Services have combined forces to offer a scheme designed to provide flexible financing options to all types of organisations seeking to make their operations more efficient and lower their energy costs.

 Carbon Trust

Introduction to the Scheme

Energy Efficiency Financing is a partnership offering from the Carbon Trust Implementation Services (CTIS) and Siemens Financial Services.

The Carbon Trust's mission is to accelerate the move to a low carbon economy, providing specialist support to organisations to help cut carbon emissions, save energy and commercialise low carbon technologies. A Carbon Trust group company, Carbon Trust Implementation Services Limited (CTIS) will use its expertise in carbon savings from energy efficient technologies to independently assess the carbon, energy and cost savings of any credit approved Energy Efficiency Financing application. All assessments will be based on clear and objective criteria.

Siemens Financial Services’ goal is to enable the affordable acquisition of energy efficient technologies through providing a range of flexible financing solutions for projects under the Energy Efficiency Financing scheme. Siemens Financial Services was selected following an open tender process to partner with the Carbon Trust to provide finance.

Carbon Trust Implementation Services and Siemens Financial Services work with recognised suppliers, providing them with the know-how, documentation and tools to support customers’ applications under the scheme.
