New £3.6m fund to help public sector retrofit homes for a zero carbon London

The funding will be used to make social housing in the capital more energy efficient

Local authorities and housing associations are to benefit from a new £3.6 million fund to make homes in London more energy efficient and help reduce carbon emissions and energy bills.

Mayor Sadiq Khan has launched the Retrofit Accelerator for Homes programme will provide financial support for the public sector to make “urgent” upgrades and improvements such as better insulation, low carbon heat and alternative power sources.

That could include improving the building fabric, i.e. windows, floors and roofs, upgrading the heating system as well as installing renewable energy technologies, such as solar panels, where possible.
