Let's ensure the Green Deal's ambition is met

The author argues that potential problems with the British government's flagship energy efficiency scheme Green Deal, need to be resolved before its launch in November 2012 to ensure that the goals are met. He explains that the scheme is based around providing access to capital to make energy improvements in homes in order to contribute to a 29% reduction in carbon emissions and 13% from non-domestic properties by 2020. He claims that charge repayments remain a particular concern.
