||<p>Renewable electricity technologies are currently supported by the Contracts for
Difference scheme, for which we have made up to £557 million available as announced
in our Clean Growth Strategy. We are also investing £177 million in innovation funding
to further reduce the costs of renewable technologies.</p><p> </p><p>In June 2018,
we launched our landmark Nuclear Sector Deal, worth over £200 million, which will
reduce costs, drive innovation and increase diversity across the sector. We are also
investing a further £2.5 billion to support low carbon innovation up to 2021.</p><p>
</p><p>The Government has been supporting low carbon and renewable heating through
the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) since 2011. The non-domestic RHI offers support
to businesses, charities and public bodies for a range of technologies and fuel uses.
The domestic RHI, introduced in 2014, supports householders in installing biomass
boilers, air-and ground-source heat pumps and solar thermal installations.</p><p>
</p><p>As of December 2018, the RHI has supported over 85,000 participants in transitioning
to low-carbon heating: over 19100, through the non-domestic scheme and nearly 66,000
through the domestic scheme. Deployment data can be found on the <a href="http://www.gov.uk/"
