Enact Energy today met with The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and The Climate Change Minister, Greg Barker,
as part of a group of 22 organisation to sign an agreement with Government to become the first Green Deal Providers.
GREEN DEAL PIONEERS STEP FORWARD
22 organisations have met with Climate Change Minister Greg Barker to sign an agreement with government to work to become the first Green Deal providers.
The Green Deal is the government’s plan to improve the nation’s draughty homes at no upfront cost to the consumer.
The organisations who have signed today’s agreement at DECC include big business, SMEs and a community group. Green Deal providers will be offering energy efficiency packages to consumers when the scheme launches later this year.
The Government will be working with the pioneers to ensure the move from testing into a managed launch in October works seamlessly and provides a good customer experience from day one.
Greg Barker said
“The signing of this agreement between government and business pioneers represents a watershed moment in the development of the Green Deal.
“The commitment shown today highlights the opportunity organisations see in the Green Deal from community groups, SMEs to big business which only bodes well for the scheme’s future success.
“We will be working with these organisations to ensure they can fulfil the potential they have demonstrated today and become the first to offer Green Deals.”
Greg Barker and representatives from the 22 organisations will be available for a photo opportunity at 3.15pm today outside DECC’s offices at 3 Whitehall Place, London.
John Egan, CEO, Enact Energy Renewables Limited said:
“Enact is pleased to be a part of the Pioneer Green Deal Provider Group. The Green Deal promises to move the renewable and energy saving market on from the consideration of individual technologies and measures to a genuine ‘whole house’ approach to improving the energy performance of UK homes. The role of a Green Deal Provider very closely matches the role that Enact has played since 1996 under its own name and in partnership with local councils, and over the last few years on behalf of Marks & Spencer and Tesco.”
He went onto say
“Enact Energy is a sales and management business providing renewable energy and energy saving services to a principally domestic market. Enact provides this service under its own brand name to the customers of Marks and Spencer and Tesco. Since setting up in 1996 Enact has been responsible for providing services into more than 400,000 homes comprising a mixture of loft and cavity wall insulation, solar photovoltaic (solar electricity) and thermal (solar hot water) systems and more recently boiler replacements and heating system upgrades. Enact operates out of a base in Cornwall where it runs a call centre and back office operations and contracts for the actual installation of systems to a national network of installers covering the different technologies.”
