Bristol City Council operates the Salix energy efficiency fund for Bristol’s non-domestic buildings: a £1.2 million fund, operated on an “invest to save” basis. This means that energy efficiency measure in your community building owned by Bristol City Council could be eligible for this scheme where installations pay for themselves on the cost of energy savings over a certain time period. In order to make best use of the Bristol Community Energy Fund, we would ask that anyone with a Bristol City Council owned building does not apply to the Fund for energy efficiency projects.

However, Bristol Community Energy Fund encourages applications for energy educational and behaviour change campaigns. If you are interested in energy efficiency changes in your building, please email us at and we’ll be able to advise you on whether your building and chosen energy efficiency measure is suitable for this scheme.
