The latest round of the government’s Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme will offer public buildings £635M on funding for energy efficiency upgrades. Launched in September 2020, the primary aim of the scheme is to reduce emissions from public sector buildings by 75% by 2037, compared to 2017 levels. The scheme also aims to support the UK’s economic recovery from Covid-19, supporting up to 30,000 jobs in the low-carbon and energy efficiency sectors.
This funding round is the second installment to be delivered of a £1.425Bn scheme due to be allocated between 2022 and 2025 as an initiative to encourage energy efficiency upgrades for public buildings. Upgrades have already been delivered or are currently underway throughout the country as a result of the 734 grands already awarded to public sector organisations across England, with Phase 1 supporting up to 30,000 jobs in the clean heating, low-carbon and energy efficiency sectors to date.
As part of this latest round of funding, organisations such as school boards, local authorities and NHS Trusts will be able to apply for grants to install energy efficient measures including double glazing, loft insulation, and low carbon heating, such as heat pumps.
The long-term positive benefits of the scheme include more cost-efficient public buildings and increased savings for the taxpayer by helping public sector bodies ditch costly fossil fuels, as well as long-term energy savings and cleaner energy solutions.
