Welcome to the Making Carbon Work (MaCaW) Project!

Based at UCLan in Preston, the MaCaW project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund alongside the University of Central Lancashire and was set up to help Lancashire-based SMEs move to a low carbon model.

The project will assist businesses in reducing their carbon footprint with a range of support and the possibility of access to a 50% match funded grant for up to £15,000 to purchase low-carbon technology. The match funding also includes the installation costs which makes installing LEDs and solar panels more affordable.
