Low Carbon Buildings Programme 'to be revamped'

Low Carbon Buildings Programme 'to be revamped'
A number of changes are expected to be made to the Low Carbon Buildings Programme in the coming months in an effort to make the scheme more accessible to homeowners.

According to John Moriarty, an official with the department for business enterprise and regulatory reform, expected changes could include increasing the maximum amount available for energy grants, as well as provisions for a new microgeneration strategy.

Renewable energy groups have applauded the news, BusinessGreen reported, claiming there is renewed confidence that the government and the industry will improve their collaboration on the scheme.

According to Andrew Cooper of the Renewable Energy Association, the firm would like to see the maximum amount available in a single grant rise from £2,500 to at least £7,500 in order to "get product out the door".

The Guardian reported last week that under the current provisions of the scheme, the programme would have underspent around £10 million by this time next year. ADNFCR-1235-ID-18488614-ADNFCR
