Energy efficiency experts, YES Energy Solutions and APSE have developed a handy ‘how to’ guide for Local Authorities to learn about the benefits of introducing ECO and Green Deal initiatives.
It’s fair to say that ECO and Green Deal have become something of a minefield since their launch in 2013. There has been a lot of noise made about these flagship Government initiatives, but do Local Authorities really know what they are all about and how they could use them to cut CO2 and reduce fuel poverty?
YES Energy Solutions have a rich history of Local Authority collaborations and were amongst the first industry pioneers to work under the ECO and Green Deal framework. They are keen to share their knowledge and experience and help Local Authorities take full advantage of the energy saving opportunities from these key Government policies.
The main purpose of the Guide is to strip down all the confusing technical jargon and simply explain how ECO and Green Deal work, what each scheme is trying to achieve and how Local Authorities can get involved.
The Guide, titled – ‘What is ECO and Green Deal’, provides information on the ECO funding criteria, the full scope of the Green Deal supply chain and how initial property assessments influence how much funding is available to householders.
