The government has recently announced a Ten-Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution. The plan includes details to help make buildings more energy efficient.

Part of this plan includes the Future Home Standard. This will set standards to help future-proof buildings by incorporating low-carbon heating helping to prevent retrofitting which incurs additional cost.

This standard is set to be introduced in 2025 Europe wide, the government plans to bring this date forward in the UK.

Energy efficient grants

As part of the governments ten-point plan it has extended the Green Homes Grant. This means that homeowners and landlords have up until the end of March 2022 to complete energy efficiency home upgrades with the help of a voucher of up to £5,000 to be put forward to the cost of eligible home improvements. Read more about making a home more energy efficient and summary of the types of improvements that are eligible.
