Financial incentives for renewable energy and energy saving

Financial incentives for the installation of energy saving measures and renewable energy technologies range from relatively straightforward grants, to fully or partially funded installs for those on low income to complex mechanisms for those generating renewable heat and electricity to recoup at least some of their outlay. 

As you would expect, financial incentives do change over time, with the introduction new schemes and the closure or modification of existing schemes happening on a fairly frequent basis.  To be kept up to date with changes, we suggest that you subscribe to our newsletter so you don’t miss out on any funding you might be eligible for. 

The information on financial incentives included on this site are those that are open to all.  For information on other support available to those on low income or vulnerable to the cold due to their age or poor health please go to the Better Housing Better Health website. 

Below is a list of the financial incentives that are currently available.  This information was last updated in February 2021
