Greg Hands – 2022 Comments on the Boiler Upgrade Scheme

The comments made by Greg Hands, the Energy Minister, on 23 May 2022.

The Energy Security Strategy showed our strong commitment to powering Britain with homegrown renewable and nuclear energy.

Thanks to the government’s Boiler Upgrade Scheme, heat pumps using this clean, cheaper electricity will be the cheaper, obvious choice for households choosing to replace their fossil fuel boiler.

It will also kick-start a British manufacturing industry that will help bring down prices even further whilst creating huge investment and job opportunities.
