Funding for Home Energy Improvements

  • Boiler Upgrade Scheme - provides grants to property owners to replace fossil fuel heating systems with low carbon heating systems such as heat pumps or biomass boilers.
  • Buckinghamshire Sustainable Warmth Fund (SWF) – provides grants to Buckinghamshire households with a gross annual income of less than £30,000 or who are receiving eligible benefits, with a property energy rating of D, E, F or G.
  • The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) and ECO+ (from April 2023) schemes aim to make homes more energy efficient and bring down people’s energy bills by helping them to insulate their homes. The ECO places a requirement on energy suppliers to help households reduce the costs of their home heating by fitting energy-saving measures. Different energy suppliers have different amounts of support and offer different types of improvements - so you will need to check with your energy company if you are eligible.
