The government’s Green Deal risks failing to attract businesses unless it provides greater clarity on how it will be financed and promoted, the CBI has said.
The deal will allow people to take out loans to improve their insulation, heating and lighting, which will be attached to the property and paid back through savings made on energy bills.

The government clearly needs to do more to get consumers to buy into the concept, says the CBI in its new report A Real Deal? Making the Green Deal Work.
