Homes produce about 15% of the UK's domestic emissions so on Tuesday 7 July 2020 chancellor Rishi Sunak set out a £2bn grant scheme in England for projects such as insulation as part of a wider £3bn plan to cut emissions.
Hundreds of thousands of homeowners will receive vouchers of up to £5,000 for energy-saving home improvements, with the poorest getting up to £10,000. More details can be found here.
The local radio station, Hallam FM, contacted Sheffield Friends of the Earth for our views on this important subject. Our newly appointed coordinator, Lindy Stone, provided an interview for Tuesday's news bulletins.
