Details

Applications for Wave 1 of the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund are now closed. Successful projects are expected to be notified by end of December 2021.

Registered providers of social housing can use this survey to provide feedback on Wave 1.

Registered providers of social housing (including private and local authority providers) can apply to Wave 1 of the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) to support the installation of energy performance measures in social homes in England. Up to £160 million is available.

The SHDF will upgrade a significant amount of social housing stock to an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of C. Wave 1 projects will follow a worst first, fabric first, lowest regrets approach to improving the energy performance of social housing by 31 January 2023.

The fund will help:

  • deliver warm, energy-efficient homes
  • reduce carbon emissions
  • tackle fuel poverty
  • support green jobs
  • develop the retrofit sector
  • improve the comfort, health and well-being of social housing tenants

The fund follows on from the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund Demonstrator, where over 2,300 homes were improved to EPC Band C and at least 1,300 local jobs were supported.

The SHDF supports the Prime Minister’s 10 point plan for a green industrial revolution and makes further progress towards delivering the government’s commitment to invest in the energy performance of homes.

How to apply for funding
