Business Support Navigator pilot helps ETI demonstrate its low carbon credentials

Business Support Navigator pilot helps ETI demonstrate its low carbon credentials

Worthing Business of the Year 2014, Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd, is just one of the local firms benefiting from funding accessed via the Business Support Navigator Project.  ETI manufactures and supplies digital thermometers and temperature sensors to a wide variety of industries, including the catering sector, in the UK and beyond.

ETI was keen to refurbish its Worthing factory with energy efficient LED lighting, to save money and reduce carbon emissions.  Worthing Business Support Navigator Tom Kenny helped the company navigate the grant system, identifying eligibility for a £5,000 Low Carbon Workspaces grant.  The process was speedy – the initial online application was approved the following day.

The company had to provide energy Performance Certificates for the building and a quote for the cost of the light fittings and labour.  ETI was given three months to complete the project, but has since been given an extension to the end of February 2015 given the extent of the upgrade.

Erika Marsh, ETI’s Company Accountant says, ‘Our next initiative is to get a grant towards IT equipment from Sustainable Routes to enable our less local employees to work from home, saving on commuting cost, time and carbon emissions.  We’ve found the Business Support Navigator scheme invaluable to access opportunities about which we’d otherwise be unaware.’
