Our mission is to work with the public sector to reduce carbon emissions through investment in energy efficiency and renewable technologies.
Salix Finance One company two funding streams Salix Recycling Fund Salix Energy Efficiency Loan Scheme
Characteristics of the funding CharacteristicLoan FundRecycling Fund Interest FreeYes Project Compliancy Criteria Technical payback of less than 5 years Lifetime cost of CO2 less than £100/tonne Project must be additional Technical payback of less than 5 years Lifetime cost of CO2 less than £100/tonne Project must be additional Funding for Projects100% FundedMatched Funded 50% PSO / 50% SALIX RepaymentThe repayments will commence March 2011 and will be in 8 x 6 monthly equal instalments No repayment as long as the recycling condition of minimum 60% reinvestment annually into projects is achieved
Salix Finance – what do we do? Salix Recycling Fund
Provide a long term interest free recycling fund for investment in energy saving projects Salix funding is matched by client as a % of their energy bill Ring fenced fund is created within the organisation Initial funding is spent over two years Each individual project repays its cost back to the fund from the savings
Project Example – Car Park Lighting by Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk (BCKLWN) BEFORE: 274x70W + 10x58W +48 x18W = 20.6kW Operate for 18 Hours a day = 372kWh/day 135,500kWh/year £13,550/yr running costs AFTER: Installation of ‘Save it Easy’ e-Ballast conversion units, and replacement of T8 bulbs with T5 bulbs. Load reduced by 32% down to 14.0kW £3,112 energy saving / year projected Technical payback 2.61 years 22.5 tCO2 saved / year (projected) 42,000kWh saved annually (projected). Project completion – Oct 2008

Matched Funding needs to be secured, this can be spread over 3 budget years 4 ready to go compliant projects of different technologies Sign off from executive and or politicians NB !! - A Salix Application can be embedded into your CMP with the identified projects from your SIP forming the basis of the application Salix Recycling Fund - Applications
Operating a Salix Recycling Fund Makes sense from a financial, energy saving and carbon reduction perspective It simultaneously lowers your energy bill and carbon footprint while delivering technology and efficiency upgrades to your whole estate Provides a focus for education and cultural change especially among employees in maintenance, building services and procurement Opportunity to recycle the fund for future projects Salix Recycling Fund
Key characteristics of a successful fund Good people to run the fund – generally the energy manager Good relations with finance, sustainability, procurement and facilities management Ability to market the fund internally Processes and systems in place to identify projects A strong stream of compliant projects
All public sector organisations in England are eligible to apply. The scheme will accept applications during 2009 until all the funding has been allocated. Loans will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Salix Energy Efficiency Loans
First call closed 17 July 2009- allocated 20% Next call now open until 9 October 2009 The minimum amount available is £5000 per application with no upper limit providing all projects can be completed within 9 months of agreed application.
Repayments should be covered from the energy savings achieved by the projects Organisations can keep all the savings generated once the loan is repaid. Loans will be available for around 80 different energy efficiency technologies Outline details
