Are you aware that the UK Government have a IETF grant program running now in the aims of supporting the onsite deployment of technologies that improve the energy efficiency of industrial processes?

You could be awarded a grant which funds the replacement of your old transformers with a new Tier 2 transformer. Tier 2 transformers provide significant reductions in load losses when replacing a pre 2015 CRGO unit, thus making them more energy efficient. You can find out more about the losses of the Bowers Low Loss Transformers. This project could be the replacement of multiple old distribution transformers or a single old Power Transformer.
