Local Authority Delivery (LAD)

The LAD (Local Authority Delivery) Scheme aims to raise the energy efficiency of low-income and low EPC rated homes (those with Band E, F or G).

This includes those living in the worst quality off-gas grid homes, delivering progress toward reducing fuel poverty, phasing out the installation of high carbon fossil fuel heating and the UK’s commitment to net-zero by 2050.

Local authorities in England (individually or as part of a consortium bid with other local authorities/partners) can submit bids for funding to improve the energy efficiency of the homes of low-income households in their areas.

​​Contractors for low carbon heating must be MSC registered. Trustmark registration is preferred for energy efficiency contractors but not essential (unlike for the voucher scheme). However, local authorities not using Trustmark installers will need to specify how they will ensure good quality work will be undertaken, the steps taken to ensure consumer protection and consumer redress.
