Report Summary

In 2011, the Government introduced the Energy Act which included the provision for a new 'Green Deal' and a new Energy Company Obligation (ECO) to replace the existing Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) and the Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP), both of which will expire in 2012.

The 'soft launch' of the Green Deal took place in November 2012 and officially came into force on 28th January 2013. The scheme was launched several months later than planned due to a delay in setting up the IT systems required to manage the process. The Green Deal Finance Company (TGDFC) launched their finance package at the end of January 2013. TGDFC will offer funding to every accredited provider and will offer the same rate of finance to the widest possible range of consumers.

As is well-known, The Green Deal enables private companies/organisations to offer energy-efficiency improvements to householders and businesses at no upfront cost. The key areas for energy improvements are insulation, heating, glazing, lighting and microgeneration measures. The list of Green Deal qualifying improvements include 45 measures of which 15 are more specifically targeted at the non-domestic sector.

The high average age of dwelling stock has major implications for energy-efficiency in the UK, with very poor standards of insulation and heating efficiency in many older properties. For example, around 7 to 8 million properties with solid walls are not insulated. The installation of energy efficiency measures under the Green Deal is largely dependent on educating homeowners, creating awareness and gaining their confidence, particularly in the early months.

As the report highlights, these product sectors are major markets. Building insulation is worth well over £1 billion with cavity and loft insulation significant sectors.. The glazing industry is now a mature sector but still worth over £2 billion and continuing to benefit from improving performance standards for glass. Improvements in boiler efficiency and wider installation of radiator thermostats are also helping to drive market growth and should be major beneficiaries of the Green Deal.

Essentially, the Green Deal will be funded by private capital and implemented by private sector participants. The key parties involved are the Green Deal Providers, Assessors, and Installers, and the energy companies collecting the payments. Initial estimates from DECC are that approximately 150,000 solid wall insulation schemes will be taken up through the Green Deal, along with the installation of around 830,000 cavity wall insulation measures, and 365,000 loft insulation measures.
