Govt outlines Green Deal plans

Govt outlines Green Deal plans
Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg has outlined plans for the government's Green Deal, claiming that it has "the potential to unlock tens of billions of private sector spending".

Speaking yesterday (August 19th) at the launch of a new renewable energy support project, Mr Clegg said that the government is aiming to initiate a "quiet green revolution".

The Green Deal is intended to offer households the chance to make energy efficient improvements without the upfront cost. It believes that up to 14 million homes could be insulated through the project, which should be up and running by 2012.

Renewable UK, the trade association for a wind and marine energy sectors, welcomed the announcement.

Indre Vaizgelaite, small systems manager for the organisation, said: "The UK small wind sector currently has more than 14,000 small systems installed but the Green Deal will be a great catalyst for further growth which, in conjunction with more energy-efficient homes, will be vital in driving down our carbon emissions."

Further details about the Green Deal are due to be outlined by the government in the autumn.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800033274-ADNFCR
