The Green Homes Grant was finally scrapped over the weekend, following months of uncertainty about the scheme which had faced criticism from homeowners, installers and other industry professionals. 

Having only launched in September 2020, the £1.5bn scheme was designed to help homeowners afford energy-efficient home improvements such as heat pumps and insulation, to help lower their emissions and energy bills.
