Energy confidence




Are you a social, cooperative, or charitable housing provider that has homes that need energy efficiency improvements?

I can help you to prepare for a bid to the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund.

The next bidding round is expected to open in the autumn of 2023. But experience shows that you should start preparing before then.I can help you with the essential tasks that will have you ready to be part of a bid, including:

    • putting together the energy performance data that you will need to be part of a bid
    • a long-term energy saving strategy for your homes that will enable you to identify which homes to put into a 2023 SHDF bid
    • understanding the likely costs
    • being able to measure and report on the likely benefits (reduced energy use and greenhouse gas emissions; financial savings to residents.


If you are a small provider you will probably need to bid as part of a consortium. I can help you identify whom to work with. If you are a larger provider you have a choice of bidding on your own, or being part of a consortium.

I will make it easier for your bid-writers to write your bid in the autumn. If you have already identified a bid-writer, then I will work with them over the summer of 2023 to help them prepare.



I have written two successful bids to the SHDF so I know what it takes to get the funding.
