The Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) was announced by the Government in 2019 in a bid to improve the energy performance of social rented homes and support the UK’s target to reach net zero by 2050. A further £800 million was earmarked for the SHDF ‘Wave 2’ fund within the 2021 spending review with successful applicants announced early in 2023.

The Government has outlined several key drivers behind improving the energy performance of social rented homes – arguably the most pressing issue tenants face right now is the rising cost of energy bills. Combating the number of households in fuel poverty in the long term can only happen if their homes become more energy efficient.
