Green News and Green Deal

Posted on: 2011-11-21 17:28:59

Dear all 

Another busy week and another week nearer to the green growth explosion!  Are you ready for it? 

This week I have focused on preparing summary papers in relation to environmental requirements.  The plethora of legislation, regulations, certifications, accreditations – and how these all fit together – can be extremely difficult to follow.  

I have therefore analysed all that is necessary to get installers, prospective installers, and the construction industry in general, to be familiar with all the requirements, and to make a start and prepare early for the challenges ahead. 

The themes I have specifically looked at this week are: 

Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)

Carbon Reduction Commitment

Energy Performance of Buildings

The Illegally Logged Timber Bill

Copies of previous summaries can be obtained via request on the link:-

Draft Green Deal PAS 2030

Energy Act 2011 (c16) – Green Deal provisions

In addition to the above, I have included an article to reassure sole traders and SMEs that there is Government commitment to help them compete for Green Deal work.  However, this does not extend to any help in getting them through all the hurdles above!

This concern, brought to me by many, has prompted me to set up a social enterprise company that will help the sole trader and SMEs through all the different processes without costly consultancy fees.  I will of course keep you updated as to the progress of my funding applications etc..

I am also delighted to have launched my new and main website:

This is the parent site to the well renowned ‘Great Green Deal’ which will continue to bring all the interesting articles, news and blogs to keep you completely up to date in the environmental world of chaos!

May I thank all those who have sent their praise and gratitude for the help I have afforded them so far.  I appreciate feedback and hope my efforts to green up mind-sets and businesses will prove fortuitous for everybody.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like me to cover anything, check something out, or for just a chat!

 Best wishes

Energy efficiency in your building

It has been estimated that over 40% of the UK’s energy consumption is building related.  This in turn produces about half of our carbon dioxide emissions and many other environmentally damaging pollutants which contribute to global warming.  Take advice and save money . . . . .

Warning: Do you deal in timber or timber products?

From March 2013, Regulation will put more obligations on those who place timber or timber products onto the market for the first time.  This article presents the reasons for this Regulation and the Legislation behind it.
