In addition to the work the Midlands Net Zero Hub does regionally, the team also works on national schemes.
Skills Training programmes
The Midlands Net Zero Hub secured £7.5m of BEIS funding to create a Green Homes Grant Skills Training Programme. We worked with 18 training providers across England to upskill the retrofit supply chain.
We have subsequently secured a further £9.2m to run the Home Decarbonisation Skills Training Competition.
Mees compliance and enforcement competition
Local authorities are responsible for the enforcement of Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) Regulations, which ensures that houses in the private rented sector meet EPC E as a minimum. Through a BEIS-funded competition, the Midlands Net Zero Hub supported local authorities to build their capacity and capability to enforce the MEES Regulations.
