The Future Homes Standard describes the new standards anticipated to be introduced by 2025 which would continue this trend and require low-carbon heating and excellent energy efciency. The energy efciency of many older homes has been improved by installing loft insulation, cavity wall insulation, double glazing and more efcient heating systems

The Government’s Green Homes Grant Scheme, due to open for applications…

… up to £10K. Energy is used by water companies to clean and supply drinking water and we use energy when we heat water. Changes to rainfall patterns suggest we will have less summer rainfall and should use water wisely. We will work with partners to promote water efciency so reducing water use and reducing water poverty. We will: Support partners to explore the potential for Combined Heat
