Travis Perkins in Green Deal alliance

Builders merchant group Travis Perkins has formed a strategic alliance with Toriga Energy to deliver a comprehensive Green Dealproposition for customers.

The alliance enables the two companies to provide an integrated Green Deal proposition from specification through to finance, assessment and installation – in effect an end-to-end Green Deal solution.

Toriga Energy is one of the first Green Deal Providers, part of a Pioneer Group of 22, capable of offering energy efficiency packages when the scheme launches later this year.

Under the terms of the strategic alliance Travis Perkins will provide in-branch consumer and trade marketing within its Wickes branches and trade marketing in Travis Perkins merchant branches. Technical support, Green Deal accreditation and training provision for assessors and installers will be offered by Sustainable Building Solutions, a specialist division of Travis Perkins Group. Supply and distribution of measures will be provided by Travis Perkins Group companies.

Toriga Energy will provide finance provision, systems development and integration. In addition, Toriga will provide recruitment and management of assessors and installers, along with Toriga software and systems training for both assessors and installers.

Paul Joyner, director of Sustainable Building Solutions said: “This strategic alliance offers a unique Green Deal proposition for consumers and the trade. The combination of Travis Perkins Group’s ability to deliver technical expertise, product and a logistics solution, alongside Toriga’s ability to provide finance and assessment can deliver a market leading proposition within the emerging Green Deal market.”
