The Clean Heat Grant, now known as the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS), is a government scheme due to launch in spring 2022 that will help to fund a transition from gas boilers to low-carbon alternatives. 

The scheme will offer people switching from boilers to renewable technologies such as air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps and biomass boilers, an upfront payment to help cover the capital cost.
