The long awaited report ‘Each Home Matters’ by Dr Peter Bonfield, which was completed by 31st March this year has finally been published and describes the way forward for future home improvement schemes.
Dr Bonfield was asked by the previous Government to report on how the Green Deal could be improved, so a subsequent scheme will have a better chance of standing the test of the time.
Due to the bad implementation, high interest rates on loans, confused oversight, minimal training of some contractors the Green Deal didn’t live up to expectations and was stopped by the Government in July 2015 only two and a half years after its start.
Here is a summary of the report – http://www.elmhurstenergy.co.uk/each-home-matters-report-pu…
On Wednesday 21st December 2016 Dr Bonfield was interviewed on the BBC radio 4 consumer program ‘You and Yours’ by Winifred Robinson about the released report – http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08558f7
