Green Deal - one year to go

20 October 2011

The Energy Act has become law in the United Kingdom, instituting the legal framework for the Government's Green Deal, which will be launched next autumn.

The Green Deal, it is claimed, will revolutionise the energy efficiency of the nation’s homes and businesses. It aims to help people insulate against rising energy prices, creating homes which are warmer and cheaper to run.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has published a ‘Housing Energy Fact File’, which highlights that more than half of homes in Great Britain do not have sufficient insulation.

It shows that around 50% more energy is used to heat and power homes than is used to power UK industry. It is vital, therefore, that action is taken to address home energy efficiency. 

Visit the DECC website to read the press release in full and the details of the Energy Act.
