SWOT of Green Deal and the delivery model proposed - Shaun Taylor, Solartech Ltd

  1. 1. Welcome<br />“ Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities & Threats of Green Deal and the delivery model proposed “<br />
  2. 2. SolarTech Limited <br /><ul><li>Incorporated in 2003
  3. 3. Market leader in Renewable Energy Technologies
  4. 4. M.C.S. approved (multi technology approval)
  5. 5. Government L.C.B.P. Phase 1,2 & 2e contractor;
  6. 6. One of 3 framework suppliers selected by Government for Low Carbon Buildings Programme</li></ul>Over 200 man years of Industry experience<br />Over 4,500 installations in the UK<br />Over 40,000 m/2 of Solar Installations<br />Lifetime CO2 savings 250,000 tonnes<br />
  7. 7. UK Renewables Market“The Story So Far”<br /><ul><li>UK has had a “stop go” approach to renewable energy to date.
  8. 8. This has prevented long-term investment and subsequent Industry Growth.
  9. 9. SolarTech Ltd. are one of the longest established renewable energy companies in the U.K.</li></li></ul><li>Strengths<br />
  10. 10. Green Deal<br /><ul><li>Up front costs covered by energy bill savings. Dealing with this barrier is a big step forward.
  11. 11. “Loan” will be assisted with an “Eco” subsidy
  12. 12. Regulations also - Private rent – from 2018 can not rent F & G rated properties</li></ul>Expected timeframe<br /><ul><li>October 2012
  13. 13. Will roll out with Renewable Heat Incentive
  14. 14. Note – no clarity on this either at present
  15. 15. May Help to achieve Carbon Reduction Targets and growth of the renewables / microgeneration sector.
  16. 16. If effectively implemented could create 50-100,000 jobs.</li></li></ul><li>Weaknesses<br />
  17. 17. Transition to 2013: Impact on the Energy Sector<br />7<br />
  18. 18. Weaknesses<br />Currently no confirmation that renewables will form part of the green deal proposition.<br />Businesses need greater certainty from the Government on what it requires<br />the new energy efficiency programme to deliver in the short to medium term if<br />business is to invest significantly in the Green Deal.<br />Businesses are, therefore, calling for the Energy Bill to be amended to align ambition for the Green Deal with the UK’s five year carbon budgets and for an implementation plan to be drawn up by the Government to enable delivery against that ambition.<br />The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has stated that the Green Deal as it<br />stands is likely to be insufficient to improve the energy efficiency of the UK’s<br />building stock on the scale required to meet the UK’s carbon budgets. <br />In its current form the Government will miss their legal binding carbon budget targets.<br />
  19. 19. Opportunities<br />
  20. 20. Fuel poverty: UK statistics <br />From ‘Fixing Fuel Poverty’ (Boardman, 2010, p.27), various data sources<br />
  21. 21. Employment (50-100,00 new jobs)<br />Reduced Energy Bills<br />Assist in achieving Governments Carbon Reduction Targets<br />Additional financial incentives will be necessary to make the Green Deal attractive to the majority of householders. This will require a package of measures.<br />• The Energy Bill needs to be amended to firmly align the Green Deal with the UK’s five yearly carbon budgets and to require a cross-departmental strategy to ensure the scheme is a success. <br />Without these changes there is a risk that the Green<br />Deal will not deliver on the necessary scale required.<br />
  22. 22. Improving EPCs<br />EPCs will be the front end of the Green Deal:<br />Improving the format – more visible energy “running costs”, and more meaningful<br />Clearer on potential cost savings<br />More accurate software and assessment process.<br />Ensuring that accreditation schemes actively monitor assessors and maintain quality and strengthening audit arrangements<br />Upgrading skills and competences required of assessors – and new Green Deal Advisor role<br />
  23. 23. Threats<br />Lack of certainty<br />Continued Delays<br />Green Bank (High Street Banks not set up to manage / deliver this)<br />Renewables not being included will damage this emerging Industry.<br />
  24. 24. Issues to be resolved:<br />The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) “the Green Deal as it stands is<br />insufficient to improve the energy efficiency of the UK’s building stock on the scale<br />required to meet the UK’s carbon budgets.<br />Businesses need greater certainty from the Government on what it requires<br />the new energy efficiency programme to deliver in the short to medium term if<br />business is to invest significantly in the Green Deal.<br />Additional financial incentives will be necessary to make the Green Deal<br />attractive to the majority of householders. This will require a package of<br />measures.<br />1.6 m homes in Social Housing are flats, 42% of stock – Green Deal must be workable with mixed tenures<br />
  25. 25. Four potential mechanisms to assist<br /><ul><li>Detail - Existing stock – know exactly which works are needed
  26. 26. Train residents or staff to understand homes
  27. 27. Make case - Assess potential for gaining finance & local jobs
  28. 28. Board/ET master class</li></li></ul><li>Summary<br />Improving the energy efficiency of the UK’s building stock will have multiple benefits for consumers, the economy, the environment and the UK’s energy security. <br />The Green Deal, however, in its current form is unlikely to deliver on the necessary scale required to meet the UK’s carbon targets unless additional action is undertaken. This should involve offering a package of incentives for householders and giving confidence to businesses to invest. <br />Amending the Energy Bill will provide the essential framework in which this would happen.<br />
