The Carbon Trust is a private company and receives income from a number of sources.
The amounts grant funded by DECC (and previously by DEFRA and by DTI/BERR) to the Carbon Trust in 2007-08 and 2008-09 are as follows:
DEFRA/DECC DTI/BERR 2007-08 90.7 0.73 2008-09 89.063 0.97
In 2009-10, the Carbon Trust will receive up to £84.53 million in core grant funding from DECC. The trust will also receive up to £121.6 million of additional funding in 2009-10 specifically to deliver low interest loans to small and medium enterprises and public sector bodies (through Salix Finance), as announced in Budget 2009. The trust may also receive further funding for specific activities from the low carbon investment funding announced in Budget 2009.
The trust’s budget for 2010-11 has not been finalised as this forms part of DECC’s wider decisions on funding allocations.
The Carbon Trust has worked with a range of public sector organisations in Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire including schools, local authorities and NHS organisations to provide carbon management and energy efficiency advice.
The Carbon Trust has advised me that it is not possible to provide a funding breakdown for these specific locations.
