Green energy: obligations and opportunities

As a nation we are bound by certain global and European protocols and legislation which have either worked their way through to the domestic statute book or are in the process of doing so. The driving factors behind the general push towards green energy range from increasing social responsibility and accountability to improving energy security. There can also be a very good business case for embracing green technology.

Launch of the Green Deal

The Government has confirmed that the Green Deal will launch this autumn after they named the 22 companies (including British Gas, Carillion, Kingfisher and Wilmott Dixon Energy Services) on the list of providers that would deliver the scheme. The Green Deal is intended to deliver the energy efficiency products and services that will enable property owners to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings.
