What is the Green Energy Grant?

Under the Green Homes Grant, the government will pay at least two-thirds of the cost of home improvements that save energy,

up to to a maximum of £5k. For the poorest households it will be more generous;

The green energy grant could be as much as £10,000 and cover the cost of the renovations in full.

For example, a homeowner of a semi-detached or end-of-terrace house could install cavity wall and floor insulation for about £4,000

the homeowner would pay £1,320 while the government would contribute £2,680.

What is being invested in public buildings?

The government is investing £1b in improving insulation in public buildings such as schools and hospitals including funding of £50m to pilot innovative schemes to retrofit social housing at scale

with measures including insulation, double glazing and Air heat pumps.

Air-to-water

Air-to-water heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air, and transfer the heat to water.

An air-to-water system distributes heat via your wet central heating system. Heat pumps work much more efficiently at a lower temperature than a standard boiler system would.

This makes them more suitable for underfloor heating systems or larger radiators, which give out heat at lower temperatures over longer periods of time.
