Aston University is delivering a project which seeks to assist small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to reduce their energy use. The initiative is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
We offer free expert advice and grant support to develop holistic energy efficiency solutions that lead to higher productivity and overall business success.
