When you hear the term 'alternative energy' it's usually referring to renewable energy sources too. It means sources of energy that are alternative to the most commonly used non-sustainable sources - like coal.
Renewable energy, often referred to as clean energy, comes from natural sources or processes that are constantly replenished. For example, sunlight or wind keep shining and blowing, even if their availability depends on time and weather. A renewable energy source means energy that is sustainable - something that can't run out, or is endless, like the sun.
The government's plan for renewable energy forms part of wider efforts to ensure the UK meets its legally binding target to reach net zero emissions by 2050 and build back greener from coronavirus. Over the past decade, the UK has cut carbon emissions by more than any similar developed country.
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) will support the decarbonization of buildings. It will provide upfront capital grants to support the installation of heat pumps, and in some circumstances biomass boilers, in homes and some non-domestic buildings. The scheme will be open to properties located in England and Wales.
A new, flat, upfront grant, the BUS comprises £450million of total support over a three-year period.
The BUS allows consumers to apply for a one-off grant payment of :
£5,000 towards the cost of an air-source heat pump (ASHP) or biomass installation
or £6,000 towards the cost of a ground-source heat pump (GSHP) installation.
Please be aware that biomass installations are only supported in limited circumstances, and solar thermal is excluded from the scheme.
Installers will be required to lead the voucher application on behalf of the consumer. Homes and small non-domestic buildings on and off the gas grid, including owner-occupiers, private landlords and custom-builds, are eligible for the BUS. New buildings and social housing will not be eligible for support. The consumer must have an EPC issued within the last 10 years to qualify.
