Green Deal sees significant growth in new plans over April
The number of Green Deal assessments logged during April has risen significantly, statistical figures released by the DECC have revealed, but the prospects for the following months are not optimistic.
A number of 210,239 Green Deal assessments were lodged up to the end of April, compared with 188,234 for the previous month. Total Green Deal plans at the end of April 2014 were 2,439, compared with 2,000 at the end of March. Of those, 756 were classed as ‘new’, 505 ‘pending’ and 1,178 ‘live’, a news source points out.
Despite the relatively good figures, UK Green Building Council policy and public affairs officer Richard Twinn argued that the increase reflected a “surge in ECO activity” up to the end of March, while the changes to the ECO policy “mean this work is likely to tail off over the next few months”.
Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.
HeatingSave is also approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust and was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project.
Last, but certainly not least, it’s important to mention that HeatingSave is a component part of the Government’s Green Deal program.
