Businesses need to become ‘megaphones’ for the Green Deal 6th March, 2013 Nick Boyle
The Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Ed Davey, has announced that businesses would need to ‘stick together to build momentum’ in order to ensure the success of the Green Deal scheme, edie.net reports.
Speaking at a session named ‘The Green Deal and ECO – is it delivering?’, Mr. Davey said that the scheme represents a new, long-term approach towards energy efficiency – stressing that businesses should become part of the ‘Green Deal megaphone’ to drive the message forward.
When addressing the question as to whether or not the Green Deal scheme was delivering or not, the Energy and Climate Change Secretary told delegates to ‘watch this space’. He said that progress would be published through Government statistics, so he was legally restricted from sharing much information before the statistics were released.
The first Green Deal report is due for release this spring and would be followed up on both a monthly and quarterly basis.
