Home Upgrade Grant scheme
The Home Upgrade Grant scheme (HUG) aims to upgrade the energy efficiency of properties off the gas network in England. It intends to enable the installation of multiple measures in these homes to substantially improve performance. The policy intent is to improve off-gas grid homes up through the energy efficiency scale. As a minimum, EPC band F-G homes should be upgraded to D or above and band D-E homes to C or above.
