More people will have their homes and businesses heated by renewable, sustainable or recoverable energy sources, as the government gives £3m to 55 local authorities across England and Wales.
The funding will support 74 low-carbon heat projects designed to provide more efficient heat to buildings and potentially lower heating bills in local areas, while also helping to cut carbon emissions, tackle fuel poverty and boost local jobs.
The 55 local authorities are the fourth group of successful bidders to be announced as part of the government’s drive to scale up the reach of low-carbon heat through local networks.
