Phase 4 of the Public Decarbonisation Scheme – What Does It Mean?

Phase 4 of the Public Decarbonisation Scheme – What Does It Mean?

Exciting news for public sector organisations across the UK – The Department for Energy Security and Net Zero has recently announced details for Phase 4 of the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS), which will be delivered by Salix Finance. Here at C3 Group, we’re thrilled to continue delivering this important initiative and play a part in helping you achieve your net zero ambitions.

What’s New in Phase 4?

This phase brings some key changes designed to make the scheme even more effective:

  • Targeted Funding Allocation: Gone is the ‘first come, first served’ approach. Phase 4 applications will be assessed based on their ability to deliver the most significant carbon emission reductions and best value for money. This ensures funding goes to projects with the greatest impact.
  • Focus on Project Quality: Salix has continued to refine the application process based on feedback from hundreds of public sector organisations, ensuring that high-quality projects with the most significant environmental benefit receive the support they need.
  • Continued Sector Focus: The sector cap system, which guarantees a fair distribution of funds across public sector areas, remains in place.

Funding Availability

The government has allocated £1.17 billion for public sector decarbonisation spread over the next few years:

  • £670 million in 2025/26
  • £300 million in 2026/27
  • £200 million in 2027/28

The Application Process with C3 Group
