Boiler Upgrade Scheme Regulations

Closes 12 Oct 2023

Opened 31 Aug 2023

Overview

In 2022, the Government introduced the Boiler Upgrade Scheme to support the decarbonisation of heat in buildings. Under the Boiler Upgrade Scheme, capital grants are available to support the installation of heat pumps and biomass boilers in homes and non-domestic buildings in England and Wales.

During this period, we have engaged Ofgem as the Scheme Administrator and a range of stakeholders to identify where changes may be needed to support a continued increase in deployment and ensure we reach our target of 600,000 heat pump installs a year by 2028.

In this consultation, we set out proposed amendments to the Boiler Upgrade Scheme and are seeking views on whether we should be able to differentiate grant levels in different circumstances, whether to retain or amend the existing EPC requirements, and whether biomass boilers with a cooking function should be eligible under the scheme.
