Government needs to ‘wake-up’ to Green Deal

The UK Green Building Council has responded to the latest Green Deal statistics which show that 626 homes have now installed energy efficiency measures through the Green Deal.
The figures also show that 1,612 households had Green Deal plans in progress and almost 130,000 assessments had been completed up to the end of December 2013.

Paul King, Chief Executive of the UK Green Building Council, said: “This latest set of figures, coming a year since the policy launched, should come as a wake-up call to Government that the Green Deal is not delivering in its current form.

“Government must recognise energy efficiency as a national infrastructure priority and be prepared to delve into its purse to make its flagship policy more appealing through stronger incentives and more attractive finance options.”
