Thursday 24th September
The Green Homes Grant skills training competition is designed to provide support to the energy efficiency and low carbon heating supply chains to deliver works under the Green Homes Grant scheme, and to scale up to meet the additional consumer demand generated. The 2 main objectives of the Green Homes Grant scheme are to:
- bring forward investment in domestic energy performance and low carbon heating through subsidies, supporting an industry impacted by coronavirus (COVID-19), by securing jobs and creating new long-term jobs
- accelerate the installation of energy performance upgrades to the housing stock including installation of low carbon heat technologies, delivering increased carbon savings, and fuel poverty alleviation, in the residential sector, for our Carbon Budgets and Fuel Poverty Target
The competition will make available £6.9 million funding for programmes to deliver a suite of training solutions to support the Green Homes Grant scheme. A maximum of £1 million will be available for each competition project, subject to state aid restrictions. The number of projects funded will depend on the range of solutions proposed and the quality of the proposals received.
