Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy - Future Support for Low Carbon Heat

Heating of homes, businesses and industry is responsible for a third of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions, and decarbonisation of heat is one of the biggest challenges we face in meeting our climate targets.

This consultation sets out proposals for:

  • a Green Gas Support Scheme (GGSS): increasing the proportion of green gas in the grid through support for biomethane injection 
  • a Clean Heat Grant: support for heat pumps and in certain circumstances biomass, through an upfront capital grant to help address the barrier of upfront cost
  • budget control and financial management of the spending proposals for green gas and buildings technologies
  • participant compliance
