Green light for ‘Green Deal’

The legal framework for the ‘Green Deal’, the part of the Energy Act 2011 which intends to revolutionise the energy efficiency of British properties, is now in place.

This regulatory green light signals to industry that the market can now get started.

In practice it means that Green Deal providers, assessors and installers can start to become authorised and put in place their systems for delivering assessments to consumers – although consumers will not be able to sign up to a Green Deal finance plan until 28 January 2013.

From late January, Green Deal Providers will be able to offer Green Deal plans to consumers and begin delivering energy efficiency and heating measures and go on to meet the Government’s ambitions for a major retrofit programme.

The Green Deal will empower businesses by enabling them to compete for energy efficiency opportunities in new and innovative ways, and boos the low carbon economy by supporting up to 60,000 jobs in the insulation sector alone by 2015.Please see folloowing link for more details;
