Home Upgrade Grants & Funding for Public Buildings

Message to Members from Tony Hardiman MBE, Chairman of The IAA

Dear Installer Member
The Government’s announcement on Home Upgrade Grants and funding for Public buildings is excellent and long awaited news for our great industry, with the first £2 billion of the Governments election commitment now being released.  As The IAA, we have been working closely with Government and have written on numerous occasions on your behalf to secure what has now become reality.  Through the support of a wider industry group and some of our strategic stakeholders it is pleasing that we now have the very positive news reported today.

If approached with quality at the forefront the future for the Energy Efficiency Sector as a whole is both sustainable (allowing growth and development) and key to reversing the climate crisis.  As such we need to focus upon quality delivery, development of the existing and future workforce and robust consumer protection.

The scheme will see homeowners receiving £2 billion in financial incentives to insulate their homes as part of an economic recovery scheme set to be announced by the Chancellor
The recovery package also includes £1 billion for public buildings to pay for measures such as insulation, efficiency and green heating technology to cut emissions and save energy

I am really pleased that as The IAA and CIGA we are working with the very best the industry has to offer and are now in a position to offer your full support needs, reducing the admin burden, ensuring your compliance and providing technical support with your every day activity
So as we move into the delivery phase please don’t hesitate to call the IAA and CIGA teams for advice and support on 03333 239045

As The IAA and CIGA we offer:
  • Free membership of The IAA for all existing CIGA members
  • PAS 2030 – 19 certification for ALL insulation measures
  • ISA for all measures required under ECO (and I suspect as a part of the construct of the future grant scheme)
  • A newly launched Retrofit Coordinator Service accessible for members
  • TrustMark accreditation
  • Guarantees for CWI, UFI. RIRI, Loft and soon IWI, EWI, Hybrid and Park homes (currently also available from SWIGA)
  • In the very near future a Retrofit Coordinator Certification scheme
  • Training and development tailored to your company needs, including delivery of NVQs
  • Support with consumer complaints and legal claims
  • Access to Technical and Best Practice Guidance for each measure
  • Seminars and updates tailored to relevant industry topics
Please share the good news and ensure your customers, stakeholders and partners are aware of the level of assurance and protection, you as IAA members bring to the table, making you the very best choice for the delivery of their Energy Efficiency needs.
