Welcome to Green Our Herts

Our climate is changing but we can have a big effect by making small improvements which can also help us to save money and improve our lives. This site aims to make it easier by bringing together information on how we could reduce our impact on the environment and adapt to our changing climate.

Low Carbon Workspaces

A new grant scheme has launched to help businesses in Hertfordshire reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Low Carbon Workspaces offers eligible small and medium sized enterprises grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 to cover a third of the cost of installing energy saving measures, such as:

  • LED lighting and control systems
  • Roof, pipework, cavity or solid wall insulation 
  • Energy efficient boilers and controls
  • Air to air source heat pumps
  • Equipment or machinery upgrades

An energy adviser will also be available to discuss potential projects by phone or email or can visit your site.

To find out more visit or contact 01494 569060 or email

Low Carbon Workspaces is funded by the European Regional Development Fund and delivered by Ngage Solutions, a not-for-profit company.

How Green is Your Home?

Almost anything we do has some kind of an impact on the environment. Unfortunately most of our actions have harsher effects than we realise.

In order to lessen these effects we have researched many subjects (e.g. transport, energy and outdoor recreation) related to everyday life. From this research we have compiled the most relevant and interesting information and presented it all under one roof. To make the browsing of our website even easier we have designed an interactive house summarising the main points.
