SOCIAL HOUSING DECARBONISATION FUND (SHDF)
The SHDF is a government scheme that aims to bring social housing stock in England up to a minimum EPC rating of C by installing energy efficiency measures.
Social landlords are invited to bid for SHDF funding to subsidise qualifying improvements – and particularly insulation and low-carbon heat - to properties with a starting EPC rating of D or below.
