The Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery scheme was launched in August 2020. This £500 million scheme funds energy efficiency and low carbon heating projects for low income households across England.
The Local Authority Delivery Scheme is being delivered in 3 Phases:
• Phase 1A: we allocated grants of over £74 million for 55 projects which will upgrade the energy efficiency of around 10,000 low-income households in over 100 local authorities across all areas in England by June 2021
• Phase 1B: around £126 million of funding has been allocated to 81 local authorities for delivery of energy efficiency projects by September 2021, aiming to upgrade around 15,000 homes. This includes consortium bids submitted by a lead local authority that cover energy efficiency upgrades across multiple geographically related local authorities
• Phase 2: funding of £300 million has been allocated to the 5 Local Energy Hubs who will work with their regional local authorities to continue to deliver energy efficiency upgrades to up to 30,000 homes across England to those most in need, until December 2021
Local Energy Hubs are a collaboration of Local Enterprise Partnerships working together to increase the number, scale and quality of local energy projects being delivered across England. Local Energy Hubs are based in 5 locations, South East, South West. Midlands, North East, North West
