Details of the forthcoming Green Deal event - ‘Delivering the Green Deal’, 22 of March - have been announced.
The event will include a keynote address by Gregory Barker MP, Minister for the Environment and Climate Change, as well as Derek Lickorish, Chairman of the Fuel Poverty Advisory Group Trewin Restorick, CEO, Global Action Plan.
In a statement it said: “The Green Deal aims to revolutionise the energy efficiency of British properties, businesses and communities.
“The ambitious ‘pay-as-you-save’ scheme aims to improve 28 million homes by installing energy efficiency measures and retrofitting new, low-carbon technologies. It is expected to cost in the region of £24bn.
“This huge spending outlay is made financially viable as improvement work is to be repaid through instalments in consumers energy bills.
“At Delivering the Green Deal you will learn how to build effective partnerships with the commercial sector to ensure a strong degree of take-up, to ensure that all households have access to fair funding and that installations meet quality standards.
“Given the rising costs of energy bills, the 5.5 million UK households defined as living in fuel poverty and the 2,700 deaths attributed each year, local authorities have a pressing need to meet the energy efficiency challenge.”
