Government rolls out £635m to boost energy efficiency for public buildings
Hundreds of public buildings across England could be eligible for energy efficiency upgrades, as the Government looks to drive down energy usage and help tame spiralling bills.
Through the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme, schools, hospitals, leisure centres and town halls, will receive financial support to install low carbon heating like heat pumps alongside energy efficiency measures such as triple glazing and loft insulation.
Officially open for applications in September, it’s thought public sector bodies and taxpayers will be able to save £650m on energy bills annually.
The support package aims to reduce emissions from public sector buildings by 75 per cent compared to 2017 levels by 2037.

734 grants have already been awarded to public sector organisations, creating an estimated 30,000 jobs in the energy efficiency sector, according to the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.
