12 Challenges FUNDING: ECO rates have dropped to a third of the original level Available GD finance far lower than expected (savings low) Uncertainty over GDHIF Ensuring level of contribution is affordable ASSESSMENT PROCESS: Significant variability in the quality of assessors Households on prepayment meters lack bill data needed to give reports higher level of accuracy Non-domestic Green Deal Assessment very costly and prohibitive unless heavily subsidised Problems with SBEM software MEASURES: Contractually difficult when working in the private sector to generate economies of scale due to uncertainties EWI is a complex system that works best on simple properties, additional costs are incurred in many cases over the basic rates: quality of procurement and tender process is critical Reliance on customer behaviour post installation – in particular in relation to ventilation
