Green Deal Assessments

Domestic Green Deal Assessment
The Green Deal is a new government initiative which allows homeowners, tenants, landlords and businesses to improve their energy efficiency and reduce their carbon emissions with no upfront cost. Find out more about how you could save energy and money with The Green Deal.

Central to the Green Deal scheme is the Green Deal Assessment (Green Deal Advice Report) which helps you decide what and how long energy efficiency improvements will take to pay for themselves.

The Assessment is made up of an EPC and bespoke ‘Occupany Assessment’ that uniquely assesses how energy is actually used by the homeowners and tenants.

The ‘Occupancy Assessment’ takes into account important behaviour factors that impact energy consumption to help property owners choose the most effective energy-saving improvements.

The Green Deal Advice Report (GDAR) also calculates how long savings in energy resulting from the installation of energy efficiency will take to pay for themselves.

Whilst the Green Deal Assessment is a tool to help households see how their behaviour influences their energy consumption and choose efficient energy-saving measures, it also provides access to various Government funding streams.

A Green Deal Assessment is required to apply for Green Deal Finance, pay-as-you-save finance to pay for installing energy efficiency measures.

To ensure a property is suitable for renewable energy installation and to apply for grants such as the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and Feed-In tarriffs (FITs) a Green Deal Assessment is also required.
