Purpose of the report

The aim of this report is to describe and promote the Green Deal by outlining the steps required to deliver the Green Deal measures and the opportunities it represents.

The paper describes the key mechanisms of the Green Deal, including the Golden Rule and the Energy Company Obligation (ECO), and how they are creating a new and innovative delivery structure to help occupiers reduce emissions.

Relevance to the region

Birmingham City Council is leading the implementation of the Green Deal and plans to improve energy efficiency in approximately 15,000 properties with around £100 million in investment over the next three years.

What SWM liked

By describing the opportunities associated with the Green Deal and outlining the main steps involved in its delivery, decision makers will be encouraged to engage in the process and gain a better understanding of the aspects involved.

Additionally, providing a case study for Birmingham City Council and its targets for the implementation of the Green Deal is useful for other areas wishing to engage in the Green Deal. It also explains the environmental, social and economic benefits associated with it.
