The UK government has announced the successful bidders for Wave 2.2 of the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF), allocating over £75 million to 42 councils and housing associations. This funding aims to enhance energy efficiency in approximately 8,800 homes, with recipients required to match government funding. Notable beneficiaries include Wolverhampton City Council, Thurrock Council, and Populo Living on behalf of the London Borough of Newham. Housing associations such as Gentoo and Richmond Housing Partnership also received significant allocations. Some funding had been previously committed but returned due to project complications and budget constraints. Among the allocations, a consortium including Places for People, Reading Council, and Paradigm Housing received £1.7 million to improve 256 homes across Huntingdonshire. The funding is expected to save households an average of £400 annually on energy bills. The SHDF, launched in 2020, aims to retrofit social homes to achieve Energy Performance Certificate ratings of Band C or higher. Wave 2.2 supplements previous funding waves.
