Helping households move to low carbon heating
Yesterday the government announced an extra £14 million in funding to help households move to low carbon heating, helping families to cut costs on their bills and creating green jobs to grow the economy.
- Heat pumps are key to cutting costs and carbon emissions, while strengthening our energy security using cheaper renewable energy produced here in the UK.
- That is why the government is investing over £9.7 million in projects based across the country, from Bristol to Cambridgeshire, and £5 million into the new Heat Training Grant – supporting 10,000 trainees over the next two years to become low carbon heating experts, creating new green jobs.
- This extra funding will make heat pumps cheaper and easier to install, supporting more households to move away from costly fossil fuels and creating jobs for the future to grow the economy.
