The Department for Transport have teamed up with Energy Saving Trust to create a Grant Fund for eCargo bikes which will be available to limited companies, sole traders, partnerships, charities and not-for-profit organisations to apply for. Public, community or third sector organisations are also eligible to apply providing they meet the criteria. This fund is in recognition of the benefits of eCargo bikes and the potential for businesses in England to adopt the idea of sustainable travel. eCargo Bike Grant funding covers up to 20% of the total cost of an eCargo bike, up to a maximum of £1,000 per bike. This would be ideal for replacing vans for local and last mile deliveries in Kent.
