Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme


What is PSDS?

The Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme is a UK Government initiative aimed at helping public sector organisations reduce their carbon emissions and improve energy efficiency. The scheme was launched to support public sector bodies, including Local Authorities, in implementing energy efficiency measures and low carbon technologies. By investing in energy saving projects, the PSDS aims to contribute to the UK’s commitment to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and accelerate the transition to a greener and more sustainable future.
Through the PSDS, eligible public sector organisations can access funding to undertake energy efficiency upgrades, retrofitting existing buildings with energy saving measures, and incorporating renewable energy technologies to reduce their overall carbon footprint.

How Alliance can deliver PSDS projects?

Alliance Leisure can play a vital role in delivering PSDS projects for Local Authorities and other public sector organisations. With expertise in Leisure Developments and experience in working with Local Authorities, Alliance Leisure is well position to implement energy efficient and sustainable solutions that align with the goals of the PSDS.
The process of delivering PSDS projects typically involves the following steps:
Consultation and Assessment
Alliance Leisure will collaborate with the Local Authority to understand their specific energy and sustainability needs. A thorough assessment of the existing facilities will be conducted to identify areas for improvement and potential energy saving measures.
Proposal and Project Planning
Based on the assessment, Alliance Leisure will develop a comprehensive proposal outlining the recommended energy efficiency measures and renewably energy solutions. The proposal will consider factors such as budget, expected energy savings, and the environmental impact.
Funding Applications
Alliance Leisure can assist the Local Authority in navigating the funding application process, ensuring that all necessary paperwork and documentation are in place to secure the funding from the PSDS.
Project Delivery
Once the funding is secured, Alliance Leisure will oversee the project delivery, managing contractors, timelines, and ensuring that all aspects of the energy saving measures are installed according to the plan.
