    Please note that grants levels vary. Energy Suppliers

    The Government's Energy Efficiency Commitment (EEC) has been replaced by the Carbon Emission Reduction Target (CERT) this means energy suppliers with a certain number of customers operating in Great Britain are obliged to achieve targets for improving home energy efficiency.

    The suppliers therefore provide a range of offers which significantly reduce the cost of installing energy efficiency measures.

    What's more, you can take up offers from any of the energy companies, regardless of who supplies your gas and electricity. Local authorities

    Most Local authorities provide grants and offers for local residents to install certain energy efficiency measures in their home.
