There was much to consider this week, w/ending March 7th, not least with news at Ecobuild from the DECC Secretary of State, The Rt Hon Edward Davey MP, about achievements and intentions with Green Deal ECO.
Many practitioners we know, and evidenced in our recent survey, feel the programme has been disappointing or worse. This was echoed by Ed Davey, saying ”when it comes to converting Green Deal assessments into finance plans, the story so far has been, let’s face it, disappointing”.
DECC is listening, so lets all make good use of the ECO Consultation, listed on this DECC page below. The APPG has ensured your contributions to our survey were provided to DECC Officials, before the Autumn Statement and in the New Year while this ECO Consultation was being designed, and other streamlining and incentives. Thank you for that input. We can see how it has helped the continued work for scheme improvements.
