The UK Green Building Council has today responded to the latest statistics on the Green Deal which show that 458 homes have now had energy efficiency measures installed through the scheme.
The figures also show that there were 117,000 Green Deal Assessments lodged up to the end of November.
Paul King, Chief Executive of the UK Green Building Council, said: “It’s no secret that the Green Deal has had a rough ride in 2013 – with fewer than 500 homes having measures installed through the scheme it is not the Christmas present Government will have been hoping for.
“With the reduced ambition of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) it is now even more essential that the Green Deal is ramped up. The proposed Stamp Duty and landlord incentives must drive households into taking up energy efficiency in 2014.”
