For better or worse, the Green Deal/ECO is going to be one of the few sources of funding for domestic energy efficiency measures in the UK, but I came away from this year’s AECB annual conference – where I’d presented on the Green Deal (see www.aecb.net/PDFs/conference12/green-deal-David_White.pdf) – with the distinct impression that AECB members are none too keen on the Green Deal, to say the least, and are rather hoping it will go away! I personally view this is a cause for concern, as we have the knowledge and experience that could make a real difference to the quality of the measures that will be installed under the Green Deal.
