The Government’s ‘Green Deal’ scheme received a boost with the formation of a new not-for-profit organisation, the Energy Efficiency Partnership for Buildings.
The body will create a network of Green Deal providers, financiers, product and service suppliers.
The EEPB is a relaunch for what was formerly the Energy Efficiency Partnership for Homes, a network set up in 1999 which brings together 760 organisations across all parts of the energy efficiency supply chain.
The new body has received wide backing from big businesses. David Titterton, Domestic & Obligations Director at npower energy services said “RWE npower is backing the Energy Efficiency Partnership for Buildings because it provides access to a network of real value… I believe the Partnership will be instrumental in making sure we all make the most of the opportunities available through the Government’s new energy efficiency policies.”
The Green Deal has been set up to enable households and businesses to improve the energy efficiency of their properties so less energy is consumed and less money is wasted.
Michael Verity, Equity Partner at Strutt & Parker said: “Improving the energy efficiency of buildings is one of the most important tasks facing property owners and occupiers. Most of the jigsaw pieces are available but putting them together is the major challenge.”
