SSEN Enabling Works Fund

April 2024: The Enabling Works Fund is now open to new applications.

The Enabling Works Fund supports more installations of grant funded energy efficiency measures. Here at the Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE), we administer this fund on behalf of Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN).

The fund removes barriers to installations, supporting households that cannot afford “essential work” not covered by grant funding.

You can apply easily by filling out a straightfoward online form.

We encourage applications from both installers and from organisations assisting clients in improving home energy efficiency or accessing funding for energy efficiency measures.

Why the Enabling Works Fund exists

Some affordable warmth schemes or help to heat schemes do not cover the cost of enabling works. 

This could include schemes like ECO (Energy Company Obligation scheme), LADS (Local Authority Delivery Scheme), HUGS and HUGS2 (Home Upgrade Grant Scheme) or others.

Enabling works supported through the fund include: 

How does the fund work?

Your client must live in SSEN’s central southern area (see map). This can be verified using the client’s postcode and SSEN’s look up tool.
