The Green Deal is a dead duck

Comment

Lets not get the baby thrown out with the bath water on this. I agree with why it has failed so far, but in the current hostile government climate wrt 'green crap' let's not lose sight of the fact that a mechanism for paying as you save instead of 100% free measures is the only way to get out housing stock up to the required standard. On VAT, its skewing in favour of new build has made any form of refurbishment more difficult than it need be for decades and 5% across the board would be so much easier. However, depending on how the current battle with the European Commission goes most energy efficiency work is already rated at 5% for VAT. charlie baker - urbed + carbon coop
