The Government recognises the UK has some of the oldest housing stock in Europe, with over 35% of houses being built before 1945. We are committed to ensuring that no-one is left behind in the transition to Net Zero, supplying solutions that work for all buildings, income groups, and housing types.

The Government recently published its ‘Adapting Historic Homes for Energy Efficiency: A Review of the Barriers’, reviewing approaches to retrofitting complex-to-decarbonise homes, including historic and listed buildings.

Alongside this the Government is allocating £20 billion over this parliament and next on energy efficiency and low carbon heating, improving supply chains and enhancing the consumer advice offer to constituents.
