Wales’ Warm Homes Programme

Simultaneously tackling emissions and fuel poverty
7 November 2018

The Welsh government's 'Warm Home's Programme' aims to eradicate fuel poverty, mitigate climate change, provide job growth and engage with communities and schools in deprived areas to deliver wide community benefits.

Since 2011, the Welsh Government has invested over £240 million in the program to improve the energy efficiency of over 45,000 homes of those on low incomes or living in the most deprived areas of Wales. 

The program has a wide range of economic, environmental and social benefits: the Arbed 2 scheme alone has created around 500 jobs and exceeded its greenhouse gas emissions reduction target of 2,540 tons by the end of 2015.
