DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/99tss6/the_green_deal_mar) has announced the addition of the 'The Green Deal Market Report - July 2012' report to their offering.
In 2011, the Government introduced the Energy Act which included the provision for a new Green Deal' and a new Energy Company Obligation (ECO) to replace the existing Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) and the Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP), both of which will expire in 2012.
The Green Deal enables private companies/organizations to offer energy-efficiency improvements to householders and businesses at no upfront cost. The provider will then recoup payments through a charge on energy bills. Expected financial savings must be equal to or greater than the costs attached to the energy bill - called the golden rule'. The improvements will be funded by private capital and implemented by private sector participants.
The primary difference with the Green Deal is that the charge remains with the property rather than the householder and should the current bill payer/householder move out, all future charges are passed onto the next householder/bill payer of that property.
The key areas for energy improvements are insulation, heating, glazing, lighting and microgeneration measures. The list of Green Deal qualifying improvements include 45 measures of which 15 are more specifically targeted at the non-domestic sector.
The high average age of dwelling stock has major implications for energy-efficiency in the UK, with very poor standards of insulation and heating efficiency in many older properties. For example, around 7 to 8 million properties with solid walls are not insulated. The installation of energy efficiency measures under the Green Deal will largely depend on educating homeowners, creating awareness and gaining their confidence, particularly in the early months.
Similarly, the level of awareness among contractors and installers remains low, although DECC aim to tackle this through more extensive advertising and regional supply chain events. Of particular importance to this sector is information relating to registration for the scheme.
Essentially, the Green Deal will be funded by private capital and implemented by private sector participants. The key parties involved are the Green Deal Providers, Assessors, and Installers, and the energy companies collecting the payments.
Initial estimates from DECC are that approximately 150,000 solid wall insulation schemes will be taken up through the Green Deal, along with the installation of around 830,000 cavity wall insulation measures, and 365,000 loft insulation measures.
