Green homes grant voucher programme


In July 2020, the government allocated £3 billion to reduce carbon emissions from current heating systems in 600,000 homes and public buildings. This included £1.5 billion to help property owners cover the cost of installing energy efficient measures, such as insulation or renewable heat systems.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (the Department) contracted with a digital services company to develop an IT platform so people could apply for Green Homes Grant vouchers.

In Spring 2021 it was reported that only a small proportion of the vouchers had been allocated.

The Committee will question senior officials at BEIS on the Green Home Grant’s design and objectives; the procurement of the contract for the Green Home Grant IT platform; and how the Green Home Grant has been managed and what has been achieved to date.

If you have evidence on these questions, please submit it here by 6pm on Thursday 16 September 2021.
