Since the government’s flagship energy efficiency scheme was launched at the end of January, almost 2,000 Green Deal assessments have been completed.
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (Decc) released figures yesterday showing that 1,803 assessments have been undertaken, 1,729 of those were taken place last month.
Energy secretary Ed Davey told MPs at oral questions this morning that this represented “an excellent start” to the programme and that the government was encouraged by the early adoption rates.
The figures show that the 77 Green Deal assessor organisations and 619 advisors they employ certified to provide Green Deal services.
They also announced that more than £26.9 million worth of contracts have been traded through the Energy Company Obligation brokerage system.
The Green Deal providers will be able to anonymously sell a large amount of future energy efficiency work to energy companies, every fortnight at auctions.
