UK-GBC sounds ECO alarm - news story here:

A joint letter - signed by UK-GBC - has been submitted to Ed Davey, Secretary of State for Energy & Climate Change raising concerns about the lack of transition arrangements between CERT and ECO. The letter highlights that DECC's own Impact Assessment estimates that there will be a drop of 93% in the loft insulation market, and 66% in the cavity wall insulation market as ECO comes online later in 2012. Other signatories include Which? and Friends of the Earth. UK-GBC members can download the letter here .
