Progress continues towards Green Deal

Green Deal
Minister of State Greg Barker launches the Green Deal Quality mark with David Thorne, chief executive of Gemserv, and Virginia Graham, chief executive of REAL (Real Energy Assurance Ltd).

A £7 million loan from DECC to The Green Deal Finance Company has been agreed that will allow TGDFC to continue developing its offer of low-cost finance, expected to be available early in 2013. Green Deal providers will be able to access finance through TGDFC, enabling them to offer low-cost finance packaged to consumers upgrading their homes under the Green Deal.

The register for Green Deal providers, assessors and installers is now open. The register will give the seal of approval to businesses that successfully go through the Green Deal authorisation process. All such authorised organisations will have to display the Green Deal Quality Mark to demonstrate they comply with the required Green Deal standards.

Energy & Climate Change Minister Greg Barker said, ‘The opening of the Green Deal register will enable businesses to start becoming Green Deal authorised, and the Green Deal Quality Mark will show they have met our standards.

‘The loan we have agreed with The Green Deal Finance Company will help them to undertake essential development and be ready to offer finance to Green Deal providers in early 2013.’

Businesses wishing to become Green Deal providers can apply directly online to become authorised. Accredited certification bodies will be able to submit the details of assessors and installers to be authorised.

Guidance on the DECC web site explains what is required to get the Green Deal Quality Mark.

Becoming a Green Deal provider typically takes about 28 days from application.
