Grants under Phase 2 of the Low Carbon Buildings Programme are only available for installations in the public sector or the charitable/voluntary sector. In order to receive the grant, the public sector body (or charity/voluntary organisation) has to purchase the installation through one of 7 suppliers on the Framework associated with Phase 2. The companies on the Framework vary in size from major utilities to much smaller scale dedicated micro-generation companies.
