Just 64 windows installed under Green Deal since 2013

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) has called for a review and overhaul of the government’s energy efficiency schemes following the latest Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation (ECO) statistics, which show only 64 windows have been installed (under the Green Deal) since the scheme started in 2013.

On 19 February, the latest Green Deal and ECO statistics up to the end of January 2014 were released. The figures show a slight increase on the previous statistics released in January.

On windows specifically:

Only 21 window installations had taken place using Green Deal Finance up to December 2014.

64 windows were installed with ‘cashback’ up to the end of December 2014 in England and Wales.

The number of windows installed using ECO funding included: 1,011 via the Carbon Saving Target element of ECO; 1,426 via the Carbon Saving Community element of ECO and 1 via the Affordable Warmth element of ECO. These represent 0.2% of the measures installed via ECO funding.


Nigel Rees, GGF Group chief executive (pictured) said:

“The figures continue to show that the Green Deal and ECO are simply not appealing to homeowners and subsequently, the replacement domestic glazing industry. After the general election in May, we hope, regardless of which party is in government, that these energy efficiency schemes will be reviewed and rejuvenated with meaningful incentives for homeowners to install energy efficient windows.”
