The government have pledged £1.5bn to support energy efficiency projects across England and Effective Energy Group are ready to help Local Authorities access this funding and deliver projects.

On Wednesday, the government announced the Local Authorities that had been successful with their bids for funding through the Sustainable Warmth Scheme Competition. After bids were submitted in August 2021, this scheme will give a total of £430m to Local Authorities to upgrade owner occupier and private rented properties. 40 Local Authorities and 57 projects will now have the funding they need, and the work is to be completed over the next two years.

However, there is still plenty of funding available from the government’s total budget.

On the 16th of October 2021, the government announced another scheme available to Local Authorities. The Home Upgrade Grant Scheme has £950m of funding to help fuel poor households in the private sector over a 3-year period. The bidding for this funding opens in the first quarter of 2022.
