British homeowners will receive grants to install environmentally friendly heating technology as part of a new Government scheme.
A Department of Energy and Climate Change plan called the renewable heat initiative will see homes fitted with meters to measure the amount of heating they have produced from sustainable fuel sources.
The ‘green heating’ scheme will offer cash incentives to households and businesses to use responsible heating as part of more than £4billion of government investment.
'Green heating': The Government hopes to encourage Britons to use 'sustainable' heating sources like solar thermal panels.
It is hoped the plans could halve the heating bills of householders and large firms as well as reducing the amount of carbon emissions from heating.
Greg Barker, the energy and climate change minister, said the grants offered to individual homeowners would be calculated on a case-by-case basis and that the new scheme will inspire Britons to seek alternative energy sources.
More meters will be introduced as sustainable heating technology – such as solar thermal panels and heat pumps which can draw warmth from the ground or exterior air – becomes more widely available.
"People are becoming much more focused on the need to be more energy independent," Mr Barker added.
It was reported earlier this week that the Government is considering offering homeowners stamp duty incentives to retrofit their homes as part of the Coalition’s Green Deal energy platform.
Building Today magazine claimed that the forthcoming Budget will propose tax breaks for buildings fitted with environmentally friendly features like double glazing and insulation.
