Biomass Boiler Funding

Homeowners across Scotland can secure grant funding through the Scottish Government’s grant and interest-free loan to install Biomass Boilers in their homes to increase heat generation and lower running costs. This scheme is available to support Scottish residents in the uptake of renewable systems like Biomass Boilers in their home to reduce energy usage and carbon emissions. 

Biomass Boiler Funding

  • Homeowners can benefit from a grant of £7,500 to support the install of new Biomass Boilers or Stoves (non-automated, non-pellet stoves or room heaters are not eligible). This funding is potentially available upon evidence that a heat pump is unsuitable for the property. 
  • For rural homeowners, grant funding is increased to £9,000 if the household qualifies for a rural uplift. 

Easy Heat Systems deliver an extensive series of energy efficiency upgrades that can accompany the installation of Biomass Boilers in a property to provide a comprehensive energy upgrade package to minimise energy bills and carbon emissions.

Home Energy Scotland provide funding for a range of these renewable systems to support homeowners upgrading their homes with multiple energy efficiency measures. With varying levels of funding support available, they have been organised into two categories, Energy Efficiency Improvements and Renewable Systems:
