Great British Insulation Scheme - A Brief Overview

The Great British Insulation Scheme (formerly ECO+) was launched at the end of March 2023, with over 3500 measures installed up to December 2023. GBIS is a new scheme that aims to improve the energy efficiency of homes that are unable to qualify for the ECO4 scheme. This £1 billion scheme is designed to help around 300,000 households nationwide tackle fuel poverty and minimise carbon emissions. It supplements the ECO4 but unlike the ‘whole-house approach’, GBIS usually delivers only a single insulation measure for every home. Mainly, the scheme covers loft insulation and cavity wall insulation that help save up to £400 a year.

Types of Insulation Covered by GBIS

GBIS can help with various insulation measures, including:

Loft Insulation
