In commercial businesses, the hurdle rates, specialist expertise, and resources required to self-fund and effectively execute the net zero transition make for a daunting and often unrealistic prospect.

As SMS, our energy systems expertise combined with our funding capability means we’re the best blend of knowhow and investment needed to kickstart your low-carbon journey. Our tailored funding and delivery models help remove your risks, making it much easier to implement energy projects and enabling your organisation to bring forward the many competitive benefits of carbon reduction.

Enabling your net zero projects

The green technologies required to realise your energy transition are now more accessible than ever thanks to SMS’s flexible commercial agreements, which offer installation, operation and maintenance (O&M) at zero upfront cost. Our asset funding options include:

ESCO icon
Energy Services Company (ESCO) Agreement

Fully funds the installation of your carbon reduction assets, including O&M.

PPA icon
Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

Our PPA option funds on-site renewable generation assets for up to 25 years, with a single agreement to cover the asset, financing, and ongoing operation.

Capital Expenditure (CAPEX)

For organisations who want to part-fund the installation of assets, the CAPEX option enables you to reap the commercial benefits from day one and engage our other energy services such as O&M, through a single agreement.

The benefits of our asset funding

  • Choose a commercial agreement tailored to your specific needs, appetite for risk, and financial objectives.
  • One single partner for funding and project delivery.
  • Remove the need for CAPEX – assets delivered at no upfront cost.
  • Ensure cost predictability and manage commercial risk.
  • We provide support for gaining Government grants, and build the business case for participating in Government-backed innovation projects that are at the cutting edge of net zero solutions.
