Details

Applications for the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund Demonstrator are now closed. The winning projects have been selected for HMG funding totalling £62 million.

The Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund Demonstrator (SHDF Demonstrator) will start the decarbonisation of social housing over 2020 to 2021, and support green jobs as part of the COVID-19 economic recovery plan.

This £50 million programme announced in July 2020 will support social landlords to demonstrate innovative approaches to retrofitting social housing at scale. It will mean warmer and more energy efficient homes, a reduction in households’ energy bills, and lower carbon emissions.

The SHDF Demonstrator upscales the existing Whole House Retrofit (WHR) Innovation Competition. The SHDF Demonstrator project is an initial investment to learn lessons and catalyse innovation in retrofitting for the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund, for which the manifesto committed £3.8 billion of new funding.

Eligibility for the SHDF Demonstrator

The competition was open to applications from local authorities (LAs) including combined authorities, or from consortia led by LAs for work on their retained social housing stock and / or housing association or arm’s length management organisations (ALMO) stock.

The SHDF Demonstrator closed to applications in November 2020. The successful bids were announced in March 2021.

If you have questions about the process, application form or guidance, please contact SHDF.demonstrator@ricardo.com.
