To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, how much funding his Department made available to help support businesses with the insulation of their premises in each financial year since April 2019; and what funding his Department plans to provide for this purpose in each month to April 2023.
The Government does not have a dedicated support fund for the insulation of commercial properties. However, businesses can apply for funding opportunities through local schemes on gov.uk. The Government does not have a record of the support provided on insulation measures through these schemes.
The Climate Change Agreements Scheme offers reduced rates of Climate Change Levy worth £255m a year across 53 industrial sectors, in return for businesses meeting energy and/or carbon reduction targets. Businesses are free to meet those targets through any improvements they decide, including improvements to the insulation of their premises.
The Government is continuing to develop options to deliver additional energy efficiency support to businesses.
