Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations provide for the making of grants for the improvement of energy efficiency in dwellings occupied by persons on low income or elderly persons; for the appointment of area agencies to administer the making of grants; and for the appointment of registered installers capable of carrying out the works for which grants may be made. The Regulations revoke and re-enact the Home Energy Efficiency Grants Regulations 1992 (S.I. 1992/483, as amended) with further amendments, among which are the following:—

a wider set of purposes for which grant may be made (regulation 5);

within the overall maximum grant per application, an area agency have power—with the Secretary of State’s consent—to set maxima and a grant-calculation basis for any purpose or combination of purposes (regulation 6);

the eligible dwellings do not include “buildings in multiple occupation” (regulation 5);

where works (as opposed to materials only) are grant-aided, they must be carried out by a registered installer (regulations 7, 9 and 10).

Regulation 3 and Schedule 1 provide for the appointment of, and conferring of functions upon, area agencies by the Secretary of State; and for their duties and powers in respect of the appointment and supervision of registered installers and the allocation of amounts of money to be available for the installers’ work (by way of works grants) and for materials-only grants.
Regulations 4 to 6 govern eligibility for grant. Regulation 4 makes provision for the persons who can apply for a grant; regulation 5 lays down the purpose for which, and the conditions upon which, a grant may be approved; and regulation 6 provides grant maxima per application and the power for area agencies to specify grant maxima, and grant-calculation bases, for categories of works.
Regulations 7 to 12 provide for the handling of applications. Regulation 7 lays down the persons to whom an application must be made, and general rules as to the form and contents of applications; regulations 8 to 10 provide for the handling of, and payment of grant in relation to, applications where the works are to be carried out by a registered installer (termed “works applications” in the Regulations); and regulations 11 and 12 govern the handling of, and payment of grant in relation to, other applications (“materials-only applications”).
Regulation 13 is a procedural provision clarifying how the various powers of specification which are conferred on area agencies by the Regulations may be exercised.
Regulation 14 contains revocations and transitional provisions.
