Green Deal Dead

I must admit to thinking that this represents good news, it always seemed to be a strange way of encouraging energy efficiency. Now if they can only do something to correct the market distortions created by RHI/MCS I would be a happier taxpayer.

The NAO report is a damning one, concluding that the Green Deal did not achieve value for money, that it cost taxpayers £240 million,and that it had not generated any additional energy savings. This, it suggested was because the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC)'s design and implementation of the scheme failed to persuade householders that energy efficiency measures were worth paying for. Only 1% of the measures installed through the schemes were funded with a Green Deal loan.
It also found that whilst energy suppliers had met their ECO obligations for saving carbon dioxide and reducing bills, the design of the scheme to support the Green Deal had added to the costs of meeting those obligations, which had reduced the value for money of the ECO. However, they were unable to determine by how much.
Although the target of improving 1 million homes with the schemes had been achieved, NAO suggested that this was not a direct indicator of progress against the objective of reducing carbon dioxide emissions because of the different amounts of CO2 saved by different types of energy-efficiency measures.
In addition, because the schemes had initially focussed on harder-to-treat homes, they had saved substantially less CO2 than previous supplier obligations. The projected 24 megatonnes of CO2 savings are only around 30% of what the previous schemes achieved.

Get the tennant to apply, get a boiler, then move the tenant and do it again, as its against the property not the person in it.
One L/L I work ( ed ) for has had at least 5 boilers done for free this way and is a millionaire on paper.
