GBIS is targeted at properties with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D-G.

What is GBIS?

GBIS (Great British Insulation Scheme) is an important supplier obligation program, running from April 2023 to March 2026. Although it will be fully operational by the summer of 2023, it is currently in the Early Delivery stage, granting some access before full implementation. Ofgem administers this scheme and it is funded by medium to large energy companies. Unlike the ECO scheme, which adopts a "whole house" approach, the GBIS will primarily focus on delivering single insulation measures, such as loft and cavity wall insulation.

Loft Insulation

Loft insulation is a no-brainer when it comes to reducing heat loss from your home. Installed correctly, loft insulation will not only make your home warmer and cheaper to heat but should even pay for itself many times over in its 40-year lifetime. Moreover, Loft Insulation Grants are available for those who are in receipt of a qualifying benefit.
