The South West Energy Hub is offering capacity-building grants to local authorities to support future delivery of energy efficiency measures.

The capacity building grant programme is part of the wider Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme 2, funded by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.

Purpose of programme

This programme aims to enable local authorities to deepen their understanding of the local housing market, including social, private-rented and able-to-pay housing, in readiness for future government funding programmes.

Funding available

The South West Energy Hub is providing grants of up to £25,000 to local authorities in the South West Hub area to support their understanding of the local housing market in respect to domestic retrofit.

The closing date for funding applications is 27th June.


The South West Energy Hub team held a webinar for local authorities and support organisations to answer questions about how the capacity funding could be used, available here:
