Britain Energy Coast - Energy





The Investing in Business programme aims to create and safeguard 521 sustainable private jobs and unlock a further £16m of private sector investment across Allerdale and Copeland.


It has been made possible thanks to a grant from the Regional Growth Fund matched by £1m of BEC’s own funding via funding partners the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

Since the first award in early 2013, grants from tens to hundreds of thousands of pounds have been made to a wide range of businesses in West Cumbria to contribute towards investments in fixed assets such as land, buildings, plant and equipment or for Research & Development.


The programme has been targeted at businesses involved in manufacturing, processing, engineering or fabrication activities, and tourism attractions.

Although the Investing in Business programme is now closed to new applications, as part of our comprehensive business support service, Britian’s Energy Coast can also offer businesses and projects loans when suitable and through our partner organisation Access to Finance can help to create overall funding packages.
