Large Scale

The Low Carbon Buildings Programme for large scale new build and refurbishment projects closed in 2011. It has since been replaced by the Renewable Heat Incentive, which offers grants and voucher payments for a wide range of microgeneration technologies installed in non domestic buildings.

Under the Low Carbon Buildings Programme Stream 2B, businesses, SMEs, public sector organisations, and community groups were eligible for a number of grants of up to £1 million. Grants were also issued for either 40% or 50% (in the case of SMEs) of the qualifying purchase and installation costs of several microgeneration technologies. These technologies included small scale hydro, solar thermal hot water, wind turbines, solar photovoltaics, ground/water/air source heat pumps, and wood fuelled heating.
