Frequently Asked Questions.
The LAD scheme aims to raise the energy efficiency of low income and low energy performance homes with a focus on energy performance certificate (EPC ratings of E, F or G).
Phase 2 of the LAD Scheme has allocated £300 million between 5 Local Net Zero Hubs, who are regional points of expertise and coordination on energy issues. This is an allocation of a share of £300 million to Local Net Zero Hubs rather than a direct competition between local authorities bidding directly to BEIS for funding. The 5 Local Net Zero Hubs are working with the local authorities in their region to deliver energy efficiency upgrades in low income homes across England by the end of June 2022.
Local Net Zero Hubs are a collaboration of Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) working together to increase the number, scale and quality of local energy projects being delivered across England.
