Applications for Wave 2.1 of the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) are due to be launched in September 2022 and Aico, the European Market Leader in home life safety, can support you in your bid through their advanced smart home technology – collecting and analysing data about homes at scale to facilitate the successful delivery of SHDF projects.

The SHDF is a £3.8bn funding programme for registered providers of social housing to improve the energy performance of social homes. Two waves of funding have already been awarded, with Wave 2.1 soon to enter the competition phase. Provision for digitalisation has been made in Wave 2.1 as a response to poor, inadequate, and missing data in previous phases. Its purpose is to improve the quality and quantity of data to track progress, provide great detail of insight, and ensure projects meet their aims. A small number of Wave 1 projects used digitalisation and this has prompted their formal inclusion in Wave 2.1.

Among the areas of interest for digitalisation, BEIS has identified “The usage of smart technology, sensors and monitoring platforms to collect relevant real-world data (from the properties being retrofitted) for the assessment of properties to enable retrofit, or after retrofit for monitoring and evaluation purposes.”.

Aico’s HomeLINK Ei1020 and Ei1025 Environmental Sensors monitor temperature, humidity, and carbon dioxide, enabling insights to be calculated including heat loss, overheating, fuel poverty, damp and mould, and indoor air quality. The HomeLINK Portal provides an overview of the performance of your housing stock so you can compare your properties, identify the worst performing to target first, and monitor how installed measures have impacted homes.
