Financial support for renewable technology

There is a wide range of support available to help you install or make money from renewable technologies.

Available grants, loans and financial schemes depend on where you live in the UK. For example, if you live in Scotland, you could get an interest-free loan up to £17,500 to install home renewables.

Heat pumps are a key part of the UK’s strategy to reduce carbon emissions from our homes, but the capital cost of fitting them is a key barrier for most households. To overcome this, governments across the UK offer a variety of financial incentives to help alleviate the financial burden of installing low and zero carbon heating systems.

Find out more about grants, loans and other schemes for renewable technologies, including heat pumps, where you live.

Installing renewables in Scotland?

If you live in Scotland, you can get up to £17,500 interest-free when you install home renewables with the Home Energy Scotland loan.

Increased cashback is now available!

Up to 40% cashback for some eligible energy efficiency measures and 75% for certain renewable heating systems (based on total costs and capped at a maximum value) is now available.

Cashback is subject to availability while funds last or until the end of the financial year – whichever is sooner. Funds are reserved for customers when their loan is offered.
