Answer for Strategy for ECO and Green Deal Delivery

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am implementing my strategy for delivering ECO and Green Deal in London: I have established the RE:NEW Support Team.  The Support Team is working directly with local authorities and social housing providers in London to develop, procure and implement bigger and better retrofit schemes that will use Energy Company Obligation funding as well as Green Deal where appropriate.  For more information visit: www.london.gov.uk/renew.

I am also submitting a bid to the Department of Energy and Climate Change for their Green Deal Communities to test ways to drive take up of measures under Green Deal.
