Green Deal Home Improvement Fund closes

The UK Green Building Council has today responded to the news that Government has closed the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund because the allocated budget has now been reached.

Richard Twinn, Policy and Public Affairs Officer at the UK Green Building Council, said: “The sudden and immediate closure of this fund is another setback for the energy efficiency industry because companies have specifically geared up to market and deliver through this scheme. 

“These constant changes are not helpful to industry. We now need urgent clarity as to whether Government will bring forward any more money to ensure continuity of Green Deal work. 

“This does demonstrate that we need long-term drivers, not short term pots of cash to avoid this continual cycle of boom and bust.”
