Green technologies fund launches for West Midlands businesses

A £20 million funding programme to help SME supply chain companies to develop, grow and diversify their businesses within the green sector in the West Midlands has launched. 

The Green Bridge Supply Chain Programme is available to businesses in the local enterprise partnership areas of the Black Country, Greater Birmingham & Solihull, Coventry & Warwickshire, The Marches, Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent and Worcestershire. 

It is funded through the government's Regional Growth Fund and managed by Birmingham City Council.

The scheme is aimed at companies that operate with the green sector or are seeking to diversify or set up within this sector, such as renewable energy, low carbon, building technologies, manufacturing, transport and logistics. Support may also be available if a project will reduce a company’s carbon footprint.  

Grant support of between £20,000 and £100,000 is available to develop new markets, new products, new processes, skills development and purchase of capital equipment and premises refurbishment. 

However, applications for funding of over £100,000 may also be considered. 

The third round of funding is now open and deadline for the submission of applications is 1st November 2013. All projects will need to be completed by March 2015.
