Helping UK homeowners save money on their heating

It’s all systems go for the Green Deal


The energy efficiency market in the UK is set to be revolutionised once the Government’s Green Deal insulation scheme is introduced. 

Today the Department of Energy and Climate Change has given the go ahead for a £7 million loan to the Green Deal Finance Company  (GDFC). The announcement confirms that the scheme will be able to provide finance from next year.

The money will be used to help providers of the Green Deal offer energy saving measures to consumers wanting to improve the energy efficiency of their properties. If you’re a business wanting to become a Green Deal provider you can start applying for the approvals process from today.

As a way of protecting people from falling victim to bogus and rogue trades people, approved providers, installers and assessors will be distinguished by the Green Deal Quality Mark, which proves they have met the required Green Deal standards. To be eligible to display this mark companies and businesses must be registered and authorised.

Some 45 different improvements designed to boost the energy efficiency for both domestic and non domestic buildings, including loft insulation and cavity wall insulation will initially be covered.

“The opening of the Green Deal register will enable businesses to start becoming Green Deal authorised and the Green Deal Quality Mark will show they have met our standards,” commented Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker.

“Crucially, this will protect consumers who will know that anyone displaying the Quality Mark has been through the required process to become authorised.”

Applications to become an authorised Green Deal provider can be done over the Internet.

  1. Why can`t anyone see that the simple provision of an interest-tree loan to homeowners to install renewable heating would encourage take-up, and as being paid back, would free funds to help others? This would do away with the 20-year drain of FIT-payments
