On 23rd August competition guidance was released by BEIS for wave 1 of Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund.
The 2019 Conservative Manifesto includes a proposal for a £3.8bn Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund over a 10-year period, to improve the energy performance of social rented homes (subject to future spending reviews).
The Government has announced up to £160m for the first wave delivering to January 2023 which registered providers of social housing are eligible to apply. Any private registered providers can apply as part of a consortium led by a Local Authority.
- The requirements will be that all installers are required to be TrustMark Registered or equivalent, and compliant with TrustMark requirements (PAS 2030/MCS certified).
- All projects must be compliant with the most up to date PAS 2035:2019 “PAS 2035 Retrofitting dwellings for improved energy efficiency. Specification and guidance” (PAS 2035).
- Installers must have appropriate certifications for eligible measures to qualify.
- Low carbon heating installers must be registered with Trustmark or equivalent, and be certified with relevant MCS standards.
