Green Deal Providers Announced
22 organisations sign up to be first Green Deal providers.
10 April 2012
Last week Greg Barker MP, Minister of State for the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), met with 22 organisations to sign a memorandum of understanding between DECC and the first proposed Green Deal providers. The Green Deal is a government plan to improve the nation’s low-efficiency houses and non-domestic buildings at no upfront cost. Barker said that, “the signing of this agreement between government and business pioneers represents a watershed moment in the development of the Green Deal.” The organisations include big businesses, SMEs and community groups and they will be offering energy efficiency packages when the scheme launches in October this year.
DECC have also produced a Green Deal Provider Guide which gives advice for organisations who are interested in becoming Green Deal providers. The list of 22 providers unveiled last week is as follows: Ampere GDP, Anglian Home Improvements, BritishEco, British Gas, CarbonLow Group, Carillion, Empower Community, Enact Energy, E.ON, Gentoo Group, Grafton Group, Insta Group, Keepmoat, Kingfisher, Mark Group, ReEnergise Finance, SIG plc, SSE, Stroma, Toriga Energy, Willmott Dixon Energy Services and Yorkshire Energy Services.
