DECC awards funding to 44 social housing projects - full list

More than 40 social housing projects have been awarded a share of £3.2m to get renewable heating into the homes of over a thousand tenants across Great Britain.

Social landlords – including councils and registered providers – were able to bid for up to £156,000 under the third phase of the Department for Energy and Climate Change’s (DECC) Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) competition launched last year.

The providers will be able to use the funding to install kit such as biomass boilers, solar hot water panels and heat pumps. The heating projects need to be up and running by the end of March 2013.

Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker said: “It’s great to see so many social landlords getting on board and changing the way they heat their tenants’ homes and I wish them every success with their projects.”

The scheme is managed by the Energy Saving Trust (EST) and successful projects were judged by the EST and DECC on a number of criteria including value for money, type of fuel being replaced, energy savings secured and track record on delivering similar initiatives.

The latest round of winners brings the total number of successful social landlord projects to 132 this year, sharing £9.4m of funding between them.
