Course Introduction Green Deal Advisor (Qualified DEAs)
What is the Green Deal?
This is new Government initiative which is managed by the Department of Environment and Climate Change (DECC), to help people save energy in their properties and save money without having to pay any upfront costs. It is a new financial framework that enables the provision of fixed improvements to the energy efficiency of households and non-domestic properties, funded by a charge on energy bills. DECC believes the Green Deal will revolutionise the energy efficiency of British properties.
