  1. Funding for RenewablesBob CherrymanHead of Energy Saving Trust – WalesWales HECA Forum – 29th June 2006

  2. Aim to cover: • The purpose and impact of grant funding • Grant funding available • The Low Carbon Buildings Programme

  3. Market Transformation Regulation Marketing Grants Support Late adopter Mass market adopter Demonstration and early adopter R& D

  4. Sources of funding: • Energy Suppliers • UK Government • Devolved Administrations • Regional Development Agencies • Local Authorities

  5. Developed in response to Renewables Innovation Review. Supersedes PV MDP & ClearSkies. Forms part of the DTI’s Microgeneration Strategy. Administered on behalf of the DTI by the Energy Saving Trust Origin of LCBP

  6. Aims of the LCBP • Reduce carbon emissions from buildings by combining energy efficiency measures and microgeneration products • Demonstrateon a wide scale emerging microgeneration technologies • Measure trends in costs of microgeneration technologies • Raise awareness by linking demonstration with wider programme of activities

  7. LCBP Funding Available • £28.5m to provide grants for microgeneration technologies (2006 – 2009). • DTI to publish details (following consultation with industry) on extra £50m. • Additional £5m for Stream 2 (EE advice, support & dissemination)

  8. LCBP Timetable

  9. Technologies • Electricity CHP • Photovoltaic (PV) Wind turbine Hydro Fuels Cell Stirling Engine • Heat • Heat pump Biomass SWH Renewable CHP

  10. Stream 1 (Individuals) - Level of grants • Electricity CHP • Photovoltaic (PV) Wind turbine Hydro Fuels Cell Stirling Engine • Heat • Heat pump Biomass SWH Max. £15k Max. £5k To be defined Max. £1.2k Max. £0.6 – 1.5k Max. £0.4k Renewable CHP

  11. Other considerations • UK wide – available to residents of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland • No double funding – grants will not be given to installations that have already received funding from another programme. • Multiple applications • for a single technology on the same building are not allowed • for a single technology on different buildings are allowed (maximum of 3) • for different technologies on the same building are allowed.

  12. Stream 1(Communities)- Level of grants • Electricity CHP • Photovoltaic (PV) Wind turbine Hydro Fuels Cell Stirling Engine • Heat • Heat pump Biomass SWH Grant = Max. £30K or 50% of total costs Renewable CHP

  13. Stream 2 - Level of grants • Electricity CHP • Photovoltaic (PV) Wind turbine Hydro Fuels Cell Stirling Engine • Heat • Heat pump Biomass SWH • medium scale – £0 < £100k, new-build & retrofit • large scale – £0 < £1m, new-build & major refurb. • Grants = 40-50% of total costs (State Aid) Renewable CHP

  14. Funding processes

  15. Energy Efficiency Measures • Condition of the microgeneration grant is a number of energy efficiency measures are already installed, where practicable for the householder: • loft insulation • cavity wall insulation, • low energy light bulbs • heating system controls • Recommendation for home energy check The same premise will be used for all other funding streams

  16. Accreditation of installers & products • Installations must be by an accredited installer • Only approved products will be grant funded • Interim scheme: • details of accredited installers available on existing schemes' websites, incl. Low Carbon Buildings Programme • fuel cells, microCHP & renewable CHP not funded currently • New accreditation scheme: • Certification of products; performance criteria; accreditation of services; setting up an installer code of conduct • Fuel cells, microCHP & renewable CHP and other emerging products will be funded after appropriate standards have been developed

  17. Information • Factsheets on each technology • Buyers guides to be developed • Technical guides for larger-scale projects • Programme statistics online • Industry extranet Web: www.lowcarbonbuildings.org.uk Email: info@lowcarbonbuildings.org.uk Helpline: 0800 915 0990
