Another warm welcome to your Green Deal Nationwide Newsletter. You now have only 232 days to get yourself Green Deal ready for the first customers from 1 October 2012. There will be Government cash backs for the first wave of Green Deal customers so it is important you start your preparations now and get a market share in this massive new energy efficiency refurbishment scheme.
For installers, the good news is that the Final PAS 2030 is now available. I have reviewed the changes made from the draft document and I am busy updating the Green Deal Manager to reflect these changes. The Green Deal Manager is an easy on line tool which breaks up the PAS 2030 into manageable segments and fast tracks installers to certification and Green Deal accreditation. The PAS 2030 is a complex document which requires a management system for each installer and which sets out the skills, qualifications, standards and experience required to install the approved measures for Green Deal work and wider.
The Green Deal Manager is a one stop shop for absolutely everything needed for certification – access to a wide range of British Standards and other mandatory documentation, guidance, statutory instruments etc. The Green Deal Manager is due to be officially launched at the Ecobuild Conference to be held on the 20 – 22 March 2012 at ExCel in London. However, as a chance to get ahead, it will be available from early March to my readership. Want to be the first accredited installer and receive wide coverage?

The much awaited specification for installation process, process management and service provision has today been launched. If you want to install under the Green Deal and ECO, this is very important information.
"The Green Deal, for example, will bring jobs right across the skills spectrum – and right across the country. I want to see genuine competition, as local authorities and local businesses compete with national brands to bring energy saving deals to market".

Created by Graham Jack in partnership with Phyllis Boardman, they are market leaders in their respective fields.
