The Green deal was introduced by the department of energy and climate change to help consumers and comapnies reduce their energy consumption through the installation of energy efficiency measures on existing buildings.
The Green Deal plan allows for the installation of energy efficiency measures without any upfront cost. Instead the costs are collected through the energy bill, and are paid for by the energy savings that are generated from their use
How the Green Deal works can be broken down into 5 simple steps. Please see the flow chart below to understand the processes involved.
For more information read through the NICEIC PAS 2030 Registration Guide.
