The new energy efficiency grants announced last week by the government are set to support just 3% of those households who could benefit.
The Sunday Telegraph reported that millions of eligible households might not be able to access these grants because of the strict guidelines set out by the government.
Last week, the government confirmed that the ECO+ scheme and the new £1 billion funding would ensure hundreds of thousands more households benefit from new home insulation.
The measures installed could therefore help homeowners see lower energy bills.
However, the latest Cebr report suggests although the government’s new ECO+ energy efficiency scheme can save households hundreds of millions of pounds, it “still leaves billions up for grabs”.
