This briefing outlines the support available to constituents to install energy efficient measures in their homes, such as insulation and replacement heating systems. 

These measures can be delivered with grant funding through local authority schemes such as the Home Upgrade Grant (HUG) and the Local Authority Delivery (LAD) scheme; or through Government grants such as the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS).

Measures can also be delivered through energy suppliers participating in the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme.

The briefing also outlines support for small scale renewable power (electricity) generation under the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) scheme, through which constituents installing renewable power technologies will be paid by their energy supplier for each unit of electricity they supply to the grid.
