Over the next 30 years, we must decarbonise over 27 million homes in the UK. That means reducing the amount of C02 emitted from those properties by installing insulation, building services and renewable energy systems at a scale and pace never seen before.

These centres will support Local Authorities, construction employers and homeowners and businesses to improve insulation and installing a range of green energy products (solar, micro-wind, heat pump technology etc) in commercial properties and housing that reduces energy consumption and carbon emissions. New courses will focus on three interconnected areas to ensure that we upskill the existing skilled workforce:
