Description of the contract

The Green Deal (GD), which launched on 28th January this year, is the Government’s flagship energy efficiency policy. It enables private firms to offer consumers energy efficiency improvements to their homes and business premises, with GD finance available to cover some or all of the upfront costs. A Green Deal requires signed consent before improvements are installed and before the attachment of the GD charge to the electricity meter. In many cases this will require consent from only one individual (the owner-occupier). Consent requirements may be more complex in the rental and leasehold sectors however, potentially leading to barriers to the Green Deal. This contract is for a project to to explore policies to address potential Green Deal Consent Barriers in this market.
