Getting a good deal from the Green Deal – views from local communities



18 January, 2012


As our contribution to the government’s consultation and wider political discourse on the Green Deal, this policy insight presents the conclusions from three workshops held in late 2011 with coalition MPs and local stakeholders.

These workshops, held under our Climate Leadership Programme, discussed opportunities for the Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation (ECO) to enhance local energy saving, views on the existing policy design and how the schemes could be improved.

We found that local stakeholders could see the potential of the Green Deal to reduce the amount of energy we use in our homes and businesses, but, as currently designed, they were not convinced that it could be the whole solution to reducing energy use and creating warmer homes in their areas.
