The next step in the Government’s drive to increase microgeneration begins today as Phase 2 of the DTI’s Low Carbon Buildings Programme (LCBP) opens.

About time too – this has been expected since April.  It is the successor to the old Clear Skies program.  Notably there is an approved list of 7 suppliers for the 5 technologies:

  • Solar PV – Dulas, Solar Century, British Gas
  • Solar Thermal – Dulas, Filsol, British Gas
  • GSHP – Glen Dimplex, EOn, British Gas
  • Wind – EOn, Dulas, British Gas
  • Biomass – RES, EOn, British Gas

(I suspect it will work much the same way as Warmfront, which I discussed here).  BRE are administering the scheme.  The pot of money is £50m in total for this phase.
