On the 8 July the government announced that financial incentives of up to £5,000 will be made under the £2 billion Green Homes Grants scheme. For those on the lowest incomes, the scheme will fully fund energy efficiency measures of up to £10,000 per household.

Energy-saving measures include upgrades such as insulation, double glazing, low-energy lighting and energy-efficient doors.
