Endorsement by delegates at earlier events   


Below are some comments from the delegates that have attended previous events:


“I learned more in 3 hours than I have by attending many other meetings on the Green Deal.”


“Thanks to the team for providing consistently fascinating and intriguing presentations and discussions on the new Green Deal proposals.”


“My perception is that almost everyone involved, or on the periphery, is of the opinion that this is a potentially fantastic opportunity to help with improving the efficiency of buildings, to combat increasing energy costs and to provide many new job opportunities in what sounds like a win-win system for all of us.”


“The speaker was clearly experienced, delivered well and answered questions fairly and intelligently.”


What is Green Deal?


Green Deal is the Government’s flagship policy for improving the energy efficiency within buildings. The scheme makes loans available, at no upfront cost, to implement energy saving measures. The loan is then repaid using the monthly savings in energy bills.


It is due to launch in October 2012 and could see uptake within 14 million homes and create 100,000 jobs by 2015.


The Green Deal Skills Alliance


With backing from the Employer Investment Fund, the Green Deal Skills Alliance (consisting of three Sector Skills Councils: Asset Skills, ConstructionSkills and SummitSkills) will develop and implement the Green Deal Competency Framework.


The principal aim of the framework is to develop new occupational standards and qualifications to sit across all aspects of Green Deal assessment and installation.


The Framework will also tackle a wider remit of issues to facilitate Green Deal implementation, such as the Green Deal Connections events.
