The UK has some of the oldest housing stock in Europe and the government is taking the opportunity to update and improve this housing to make it more energy efficient.
The idea behind the Green Deal is simple - the UK government has made commitments to cutting CO2 emissions by 34 per cent of 1990 levels by 2020. One of the easiest ways to achieve this goal is to properly insulate more properties, which will not need as much energy to heat.
Insulation and energy control are going to be the corner stones of how the government is going to reach their targets. The government has decided to switch tactic in recent months and focus on insulating properties before funding is released for power generation or ‘energy out’ measures.
The Green Deal will enable private companies to offer consumers energy efficiency improvements without the upfront cost by allowing repayments in installments, through savings made on energy bills. From October 2012 consumers will be able to get finance of up to £10,000 to help pay for energy saving measures. The government is keen to stress that the Green Deal is not a 'loan' in the traditional sense. In theory, under what is termed the 'Golden Rule', you won’t pay back more money than you will save on your energy bills each month (although this is not guaranteed). This means that rather than having to dip into your savings or take out loans to install loft or cavity wall insulation, solid wall insulation, double glazing or maybe a new boiler, you can take out long-term finance and it will stay attached to your home, not you.
