Grant awarded to create super energy efficient Council homes

Dozens of houses in the District, will have permanently reduced fuel bills, better air quality and improved energy efficiency ratings thanks to a successful government funding bid.

A grant of over £1.35m has been awarded by the BEIS Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund Demonstrator programme to Warwick District Council and Oxford Brookes University for a project which will see 50 Council homes with low energy ratings undergo whole house energy retrofits using some of the latest technology available.

The homes selected will have the money and energy saving alterations made for free including; the replacement of windows with high-performance triple glazing, under floor and loft insulation and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery to reduce the risk of damp and mould, and provide fresh filtered air.
