Why are Green Deal Advisors/Assessors necessary?

October 24, 2012

The Green Deal assessment is the gateway to the Green Deal, no one will be able to enter into a Green Deal plan without a qualifying assessment of the building and recommendations for measures that could improve the energy efficiency of their home.

The assessment and accompanying advice must be carried out by a qualified and authorised Green Deal advisor. They will have a mixture of technical knowledge, practical competence and ‘soft’ skills to provide households and businesses with the advice they need to take informed decisions.

A significant amount of work has already been done to put in place the necessary qualifications, specifications for all Green Deal Advice certification bodies, organisations and advisors, and the tools and methodologies to produce assessments to support Green Deal in the domestic and non-domestic sector.
