The majority of the homeowners who applied for the Green Homes Grant Voucher (GHGV) scheme used the subsidy to make insulation improvements.

The GHGV scheme was launched in September last year to help householders and landlords to install energy efficiency measures in their homes.

According to the BEIS latest data, of the 31,900 measures installed an estimated 74% were insulation measures with low carbon heat accounting for 24% of all measures installed.

The most common measure of the scheme which closed for applications on 31st March, was loft insulation, followed by pitched roof insulation measures.

The report suggests that overall the scheme received 113,700 applications associated with 169,000 vouchers.

Following eligibility checks, of all applications, nearly 43% were withdrawn or rejected.
