4. Time frame for delivery and national and local partners
The Green Deal and ECO’s introduction in 2013 will inevitably affect delivery of energy efficiency measures in the district. The Green Deal Impact Assessment forecasts that nationally the delivery of some measures will fall while others will remain at previous levels.
- Monitor developments in 2013 and 2014 and review its potential role
The Council will monitor developments in 2013 and 2014, particularly with early delivered schemes by other Councils and review its potential role, as the Green Deal and ECO become established.
The Council will continue to engage a wide range of partners nationally in government, the business and third sector and community organisations, as needed, to develop its programme.
Through our SWEEG Agreement with the Centre for Energy and the Environment at the University of Exeter, we will evaluate the data analysis work that has been carried out and consider the advantages of continuing with this.
We will engage in enabling and facilitating interventions to assist the Fuel Poor in Hard to Treat properties across the district.
Partners in the Ready to Retrofit project include the Energy Savings Trust, Regen SW and Devon and Cornwall Housing Group. Included on the steering group for this project are all Devon Authorities, including Devon County Council.
The Cosy Devon Scheme partners included all Devon Authorities, Devon County Council, Plymouth City Council and Torbay Council and E-ON. Discussions are ongoing to establish whether the Cosy Devon Model is appropriate to approach Green Deal and ECO roll out.
