5 Green Deal: Meeting the Golden Rule Energy Bill Reduction Repayment Reduce overall outgoing = Golden Rule applies Owner 1 before work Owner 1 after work 5

6 How will it work? The DECC “customer journey”…

7 Dealing with Large Upfront Costs What will the Green Deal pay for? Energy Bill Reduction Loan repayment Owner 1 before work Owner 1 after work 7% APR Lifestyle ‘safety net’ Administration Costs Assessment Costs

8 Energy Company Obligation The only form of subsidy for the Green Deal currently proposed. Due to replace CERT and CESP in 2012, also funded via energy bills. Focus on fuel poverty (‘Affordable Warmth) and hard- to-treat homes (esp. solid wall). Size of overall pot and relative focus on HtT vs. FP as yet unknown Access to funding for all via a “brokerage” system

9 GD Providers Could be retailers (B&Q, M&S, Tesco), energy companies, contractors, local authorities, social landlords Will play the central role in the GD, with responsibilities including: Marketing the Green Deal Delivering works (via internal/outsourced contractors) Customer service Organising finance (and CCA) Liaising with energy companies Etc… Exact nature of the role still unclear and may be flexible. Code of conduct to be adhered to. Financial and administrative burdens likely to be quite significant.

10 What can be achieved? Victorian, Built 1870 ‘Conventional’ Semi-Detached Solid Walled No south facing roofs No insulation 6 different window types High Ground Levels Damp 10

11 Structural repairs Re-wiring Windows Damp-proofing Extension Renovation Required Other Measures Heating Electrical Water Insulation – x10 Windows Underfloor Heating Biomass / Condensing Solar Thermal Appliances Bulbs Rainwater Harvesting Appliances

12 Eco measures are 15% of total refurbishment cost (£85,000 total, £12,750 ‘eco’) Economic pay-back is 7-8 years on average. Energy reduction of 72% per m 2 55% reduction from draughtproofing and insulation Costs heavily associated with logistics and ease of install BUT – We’ve got to do the lot! Key Outcomes
