Carbon Trust

The Carbon Trust is the de facto UK energy efficiency organisation, running a large number of initiatives to encourage energy saving in both industry and buildings. It is funded almost entirely from Government funds, and is responsible for several activities of interest to motor users:

  • Industrial accelerator programs. In depth studies of sector energy use to identify particular energy saving measures of interest to individual sectors, many of which.
  • Publications library. It maintains and develops a large library of publications on energy saving opportunities. These include some very detailed “Energy Efficiency Best Practice Programme” publications.
  • Helpline. This gives tailored advice to enquirers, and in some regions access to free or subsidised individual energy audits.
