Third phase of GDHIF closes
Published:  30 March, 2015

The £70 million available through the third release of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) has been fully allocated.

An additional £5 million, remaining from release two of GDHIF, is being made available immediately so householders can continue to apply for funding to make energy saving home improvements. The funding will be allocated as follows:

  • up to £1,250 for installing two measures from an approved list;
  • up to £100 refunded for a Green Deal Assessment if it recommends the measures applied for;
  • up to £500 more if applying within 12 months of buying a new home.

Money for GDHIF is part of over half a billion pounds allocated for household energy efficiency between 2014 and 2017.

Energy & Climate Change Minister Amber Rudd said: “Thousands of families are taking advantage of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund and reaping the benefits of a warmer home and lower energy bills.

“It’s no surprise the latest round of funding has been snapped up so quickly but there’s still money available through GDHIF to help even more people have a warmer home for less.”

The approved list of measures for the £5 million remaining from the second release of GDHIF is as follows:

  • Cavity wall insulation;
  • Condensing mains gas boiler;
  • Secondary glazing;
  • Double/triple glazing (replacing single glazing);
  • Flat roof insulation;
  • Replacement warm air unit;
  • Fan-assisted storage heaters;
  • Energy efficient replacement doors;
  • Floor insulation;
  • Room-in-roof insulation;
  • Waste water heat recovery.

Remaining funds are limited and DECC may vary the terms of the scheme (including the incentive rates) or suspend or close the scheme, with immediate effect, without notice and at any time.
