“Our Green Homes Grant scheme will enable people to improve the energy efficiency of their homes, cut their household bills and tackle climate change while supporting tens of thousands of jobs for skilled builders, plumbers and tradespeople across the country," Business and Energy Secretary Alok Sharma said. "This is exactly the kind of scheme that I hope Grand Designs readers will want to make the most of.”

Kevin McCloud, presenter of Grand Designs, editor-at-large of Grand Designs magazine and front man for Grand Designs Live, remarked: “I’m pleased to see that the government-led Green Homes Grant initiative is leading the drive towards a green approach to home retrofits. This is an ethos that I, through Grand Designs, have personally championed for two decades, and I am delighted that Grand Designs magazine and BEIS are partnering to help make it happen."
