Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme
Received: 7 April 2023
Part 1: overall schemes, and energy efficiency
1. How much money did your council bid for from the PSDS, if any, in all rounds allocated up to March 2023. (Phases 1,2 and 3a?) Can you state:
a) The number of schemes/buildings bid for
b) The number of schemes/buildings that received funding.
c) If boroughs that received nothing didn't make a bid, just state that. (The amounts actually awarded are in the table below).
d) How much 'match funding' are you providing for PSDS part-funded schemes?
2. Of the total PSDS funding awarded to you, roughly what proportion will be spent on energy efficiency measures/insulation, as opposed to heating and solar panels?
3. If you have self-funded plans that don't include PSDS funding, please provide brief details. (Eg, how many buildings will be improved to what EPC Band by when? Of total planned spending, roughly what proportion will be spent on energy efficiency measures, as opposed to heating and solar panels?
4. How many non-residential buildings does the council own?
5. How many already meet EPC Band C or better?
6. If you have long term plans, please briefly explain. (Eg, we plan ensure that 8 out of 10 council owned buildings reach EPC Band C or better by 2030, with 2 at Band B).
Part 2: Heat pumps in council-owned non-residential buildings
1. How many buildings have already been fitted with heat pumps by March 2023? (This would probably be separate to PSDS schemes).
2. In the scheme(s) awarded funding by the PSDS, roughly what proportion/% will be spent on heat pumps, as opposed to energy efficiency measures or solar panels?
3. How much money will be spent on Heat Pumps? (If any)
Part 3: Solar Panels on council-owned non-residential buildings
1. How many buildings have already been fitted with solar panels by March 2023? (This would probably be separate to schemes funded by the PSDS).
2. In the scheme(s) awarded funding by the PSDS, roughly what proportion/% will be spent on solar panels, as opposed to energy efficiency measures or solar panels?
3. How much will be spent on solar panels?
Part 4: Support from the Mayor of London/ collaborations
1. The Mayor/GLA bid for funding on behalf of most boroughs, for the Homes Upgrade Grant (HUG), and recently got awarded £12m. As mentioned, I will ask about this in a separate email. Not here. But if you have received any support from the GLA separate to the HUG programme, brief details would be appreciated. (The London Plan enables boroughs to collect Carbon Offset contributions from developers. The Mayor's London Net Zero Updated Pathway of 2022, included the following schemes: Mayor's Energy Efficiency Fund; Green New Deal Fund; Retrofit Accelerator; Local Energy Accelerator; Solar Together London; London Community Energy Fund).
2. If any councils collaborated with other public bodies or housing associations to bulk buy solar panels or heat pumps under the PSDS it would be useful to get brief details of that.
