A Derby-based company has secured cash to help reduce its carbon emissions.
The D2 Energy Efficiency (D2EE) project, a partnership run by the University of Derby, Derby City and Derbyshire County councils, has given the funding to Tidyco, a hydraulic and pneumatic components manufacturer.
The company applied for the investment to part-fund the costs of installing a new energy efficient LED lighting system at its premises. The system uses 60 per cent less energy and will save the company £1,740 a year on electricity.
This project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 in England.
