Our schemes

We design, host and deliver energy efficiency programmes either on behalf of our Advocate Members or as a service provider under contract. Here is a summary of our Live and Developing schemes.

Live Schemes

Warmer Homes, for the Greater London Authority

This was initially a £2.5m grant scheme now augmented to £4.6m following its ongoing success.

Up to £4,000 worth of home improvements are available per eligible household in any London Borough. It can be used for any appropriate measure to improve energy performance and internal living conditions, particularly air quality.

All surveys and installations are managed by RetrofitWorks, and Retrofit Coordinators lead on judging suitability of measures for each home and the successful implementation.

Additional funds per household are possible with ECO funding.

  • advice on getting help to pay for heating
  • an assessment of your home to identify how to keep warm
  • small works such as improving insulation or repairing boilers
  • emergency temporary heating.

Installation of replacement boilers, central heating systems or home insulation is also possible subject to eligibility and limited availability of additional grants.

Warmer Sussex

We have worked with a number of local collaborators to secure Government funding to build a local market to transform the housing stock of Sussex. Warmer Sussex is an alliance of expert advocates, advisers, designers and contractors that have worked for many years, seeking to make homes more comfortable, cheaper to run and less impactful on the planet.

Developing Schemes

EcoFurb   (launch early 2020)

Government funding has been awarded to Parity Projects (Advocate Member) to develop a self-sustaining retrofit market for the able-to-pay sector.

Homes as Energy Systems (HAES) – ERDF Project, Manchester  (December 2019)

RetrofitWorks is a partner in a ground-breaking project to show how to get our existing homes to zero carbon by making them part of the energy system, so be able to generate an income to help pay for works to radically reduce their energy use.

We are going to spend £1 million on 20 private homes across Greater Manchester to see how far that will get them to zero net energy use and carbon emissions. More details available here
