Funding should usually be for specific time-bound projects that accelerate the adoption of renewable energy and low carbon technologies with a specific focus on scaling up the delivery of whole house retrofit.

For the avoidance of doubt, retrofit means fabric and renewable technologies.

Projects should have a UK-wide impact, either through having a national reach or through developing/demonstrating an innovative approach that could be replicated, adapted or scaled up.

As a UK-wide Foundation, bids specific to the context in the devolved nations and regions are welcome.

  • Whole house retrofit supply chain development.
