The Green Deal

The Green Deal is a new government scheme that was designed to encourage businesses and home owners to employ more green technologies in their properties, in a bid to reduce the amount of carbon emissions produced.  The idea is to install green technology into the property with no upfront cost.  The homeowner or business will pay back the costs through their energy bill over a period of time.  It is due to be launched this Autumn, 2012.

The Climate Change Act in 2008 resulted in a legislation to reduce carbon emissions by 34%, by 2020.  To achieve this we need to make our homes and workplaces more energy efficient, and use low carbon sources for heat and power.  The Green Deal will play a major part here in implementing energy efficient measures.

Green technologies can include energy efficiency measures, such as loft and cavity wall insulation, energy efficient glazing, innovative hot water systems, and microgeneration measures such as solar and wind power.
