The HUG is a government scheme that aims to improve the energy efficiency of off-gas grid properties in England – specifically those with an EPC rating of D or below and occupied by a low income household (although landlords can also receive part-funding for upgrades to their properties).

Local authorities are invited to bid for HUG funding to be spent in their local areas on measures including insulation and low-carbon heat.

Cornerstone is partnering with multiple local authorities to directly deliver HUG funded schemes across the country.

HUG2 closed for applications on 27th January 2023; delivery of successful projects is scheduled for 2023-25.

We are able to offer the following to local authorities:

Support in designing and costing schemes and writing bid applications

Assistance with scheme targeting, marketing and engagement to generate sufficient uptake

Direct accreditation for many insulation and renewable measures, avoiding the use of costly managing agents

A turnkey service, from Retrofit Assessment and Coordination through to installation and lodgement

Full management of the customer journey throughout the retrofit process

Completion of the scheme in good time, meeting BEIS delivery and reporting requirements

There are numerous routes to quickly and compliantly appoint Cornerstone as your delivery partner – see our procurement page for more information.

Installation capacity for many retrofit measures is currently outstripping supply – one of the main reasons that recent schemes have failed to deliver in full. Secure your supply chain today to protect against under-delivery in a period of high demand.
