This is the first Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) annual report. As part of our statutory responsibilities administering the BUS, we have produced this report to provide an update on activity since scheme launch on 23 May 2022 to 31 March 2023 (Scheme Year 1).
The Executive Summary is provided here, and the full report is published at the bottom of this page.
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) launched on 23 May 2022 to support the decarbonisation of heat in buildings. It provides upfront capital grants towards the cost of installing approved heat pumps and biomass boilers in homes and small non-domestic buildings in England and Wales. Decarbonising the way we heat our homes and businesses is essential to reach net zero carbon emissions and the BUS has an important role to play in achieving this.
As scheme administrator, we ensure the scheme is operated efficiently, including managing applications made by installers, issuing vouchers, making payments, and reporting on scheme activity. Additionally, our audit and compliance programme monitors compliance with the scheme rules, making sure that grants are only paid to those eligible to receive them.
