£12m boost to help cities kick-start Green Deal

 

In a statement announced on Friday 21 September, DECC explained how seven cities across England will receive a share of £12million to help them kick-start the Green Deal in their regions.

 

Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield have put forward ambitious proposals to lower their carbon emissions and this new funding will support their plans to test key elements of the Green Deal. This funding will be a key opportunity to test elements of the Green Deal framework like assessment and installation, and provide early feedback.

Hi Jenni,

I think this was 2012, what happened to the money? Did the green deal get kickstarted? Where is the feedback from these people?

Looks like it was abandoned by Vince Cable and Co. I think they ran out of cash.

The EU binding directives are not looking too binding at the moment.
1.. 40% less greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, compared to 1990
2.. At least 27% of renewable energy used at EU level
3.. An energy efficiency increase of at least 27%
4.. An electricity interconnection target of 15% between members states
