Lessons we are taking
forward


Every home is different, every household is different

Value of local outreach, trusted intermediaries and
exemplars


Good quality advice needed throughout customer

Importance of local supply chain

need to target older more difficult properties


Government
Green Deal framework

Accredited products, assessments, installers


Loans linked to electricity meter, not person


Repaid thro electricity bills: private finance


Golden Rule limitation: (modelled) savings must be
more than payments


Energy Company Obligation (ECO)


Carbon
:

all homes, part funding, solid wall insulation


ECO Community
: deprived
areas, high % funding, all
measures


ECO
Affordable
Warmth

households selected benefits

mainly
heating & boilers , hard to treat cavities










The Green Deal

In a nutshell
....


Governments
flagship energy efficiency
scheme whereby energy efficiency measures
are installed at no upfront cost & the cost of
measures are recovered through the electricity
bill


Assessment

Installation

Repayments
& follow up

Finance





The Golden Rule

The overall energy bill should not go up as the
monthly bill savings from installing the measure
should be greater than or equal to the repayment.
For example....

Household Energy
Bill

£800

Green Deal Finance

Green Deal Measures

Lower

Household Energy Bill

£400

Repayment £300
