Grants launched to help improve energy efficiency of Edinburgh’s historic buildings

GRANTS are to be made available, to help improve the energy efficiency of properties in the area of Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site.

The grants – which extend to rainwater management, in the wider context of tackling climate change – are being issued by an organisation tasked with managing the site: Edinburgh World Heritage.

Says Edinburgh World Heritage, here: “Edinburgh World Heritage is launching a Climate Emergency Grant that will provide funding to private owners and public, private and Third Sector organisations wishing to carry out targeted energy-efficiency improvements or climate change adaptation interventions alongside conservation repairs in their properties – specifically involving historic windows, doors and rainwater goods.”

The Edinburgh World Heritage Site covers both the Old and New Towns of the capital.

And grants are capped at £25,000 per project.
