Headlines such as ‘Green Deal Cashback Scheme in Tatters’ reflect the fact that as of November 2012 not a single household had signed up for the flagship coalition energy efficiency scheme.1 This is set to change however with the introduction of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) – offering home owners up to £7600 cashback. Mike George intends to be one of the very first to take advantage of this offer with the aid of Green Deal assessor, Neil Dodd. This, the first of a series of articles will follow the progression of the works from survey to post-completion energy use and aims to aid others, not just in the Green Deal (GD) process, but with external wall insulation (EWI) best practice.
