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.
