15th May, 2013

A new 6million competition aimed at getting renewable heating kit into the homes of social tenants across Great Britain has been launched by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). The competition will help registered providers of social housing to install heat pumps, solar thermal panels and biomass boilers.

There will be two bidding windows, the first closing on 28 June 2013, with projects to be completed by March 2014, and the second closing on 27 September 2013, with installations to be finished by June 2014.

The scheme will be run by the Energy Saving Trust and bids will be judged by a panel of experts on a range of criteria including value for money, fuel to be replaced, additional energy efficiency measures to be installed and plans to work with local communities. Social landlords already allocated money under previous rounds of this competition are eligible to apply for further funding for new projects.
