The axing of the Green Homes Grant this past weekend brought an end to a scheme that promised much, but delivered very little. 

Having only launched in September, the government pledged to improve the energy efficiency of 600,000 homes on the grant. Reportedly just 10% of this target has been met, although applications remain open until Wednesday 31 March at 5pm, and all live applications will be honoured.
