Green Deal

The Green Deal is an innovative financing mechanism that lets people pay for energy-efficiency improvements through savings on their energy bills.

Green Deal was launched in January 2013 and applies to both the domestic and non-domestic sector. It replaces current policies such as the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) and the Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP).

What improvements will the Green Deal cover?

There are 45 measures or areas of home improvement approved to receive funding under the Green Deal, covering:

  • Insulation
  • Heating and hot water
  • Glazing
  • Microgeneration (generating your own energy).

To find out more about the Green Deal and how it may be relevant to you follow these links for more information.
