Manchester City Council has announced a collaboration with Next Energy, an energy retrofitting specialist, for a £9 million project aimed at improving energy efficiency in homes across Manchester.

Under the government’s Home Upgrade Grant Phase 2 (HUG2), this initiative seeks to enhance the energy performance of eligible homes in alignment with national net zero targets by 2050.

The contract entails the installation of various energy-efficient measures in 500 homes, targeting properties with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D, E, F, or G and households with combined incomes below specified thresholds.

The partnership with Manchester City Council underscores efforts to combat fuel poverty and reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the city, particularly in off-gas areas.

Officials emphasise the importance of the scheme in achieving both local and national environmental objectives, urging eligible residents to avail themselves of the opportunity to improve energy efficiency and reduce heating costs.
