Now this England-only scheme has been given the green light, how successful will it be in reducing carbon emissions? And what is in place for the rest of the UK?
The UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced in July the introduction of Green Homes Grants in England [which at the time of writing was due to launch by the end of September]. The initiative means the government will pay two-thirds of the cost of energy-efficient home improvements up to the value of £5,000 per household. Meanwhile, low-income homes that receive certain benefits can receive up to £10,000. The scheme is open to homeowners and private and social landlords.
