Green light for £2.5bn two-year housing retrofit drive

Green light for £2.5bn two-year housing retrofit drive

The Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund and Home Upgrade Grant are expected to result in improvements to more than 115,000 homes.

Local authorities, providers of social housing and charities have been awarded £630m from phase two of the latest stage of the Home Upgrade Grant; £778m will be provided through the latest wave of the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund. An additional £1.1bn in match funding for social housing is being provided by local authorities, providers of social housing and charities to bring the total investment to £2.5bn.

The money will be used to fund energy-saving measures ranging from insulation to new windows.

On top of this, a further £409m has been granted through the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme to reduce the energy bills of public sector buildings such as schools and hospitals.

The funding will be rolled out from April 2023 to upgrade homes over the next two years.

According to the newly-formed Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, the work could support 20,000 jobs in the construction and housing maintenance sectors.

Energy efficiency minister Lord Callanan said: “The UK is truly a world-leader when it comes to reducing carbon emissions and the progress we’ve made over the last decade has been remarkable. But we can’t rest on our laurels and must continue to drive forward progress, setting a standard for other countries to follow.

“Reaching net zero means considerable action from the public sector as well as private sector. Through the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme funding allocation announced today, we are empowering public bodies to save the taxpayer hundreds of millions while packing a punch on our ambitious and necessary climate goals.”

Energy UK chief executive Emma Pinchbeck said: “Improving the energy efficiency of Britain’s draughty homes and buildings is the best way to cut energy bills permanently, while also boosting the UK’s energy security and reducing carbon emissions.

“Today’s announcement will rightly prioritise those who need support the most like low- income households, social housing and public buildings. Industry will work with government to build on these vital schemes and to remove any barriers that prevent households and businesses from saving money on their bills by reducing heat loss and conserving energy.”

Dan Morten 18/01/22

Easy to work with, Jordan and the team were professional and were easy to communicate with.
Would highly recommend.

Di Hayes 20/08/22

NuGen Properties built an extension to the rear of my property, replacing the old conservatory. I am so pleased I chose this company. From the initial quotation, through the build and after they were professional, polite & well mannered. They kept the site tidy throughout the build and kept me informed of each stage as it happened. The work was finished to a good standard and I have had nothing but compliments on their work. I am already planning for them to come back and do some more work for me in a few months. I would 100% recommend them.
