Green Deal may be missing its prime target

LONDON: The independent think tank New Local Government Network (NLGN) has launched a report into the Government's Green Deal programme.
NLGN's research was explained during a presentation before a panel that included Andrew Stunnell MP and Matilda Quiney, head of Green Deal from British Gas.
Findings suggest the programme may not reach the households most in need of energy efficiency measures.
Mr Stunnel said he had recently visited Building Research Establishment (BRE) and witnessed the company planning how to work with installers for the deal.
The scheme will enable households to install improvements with a value of up to £6500 at no up-front cost, which is paid back over a 25-year period.
