How it delivers the expected outcomes 
Promote business growth 
Ensure local businesses benefit from the investment in the sub-region’s housing stock and commercial premises. Green Deal will also help lower household spend on energy bills and thus retain spending within the local economy. 
 
Create new/safeguard jobs 
The promotion and implementation of the Green Deal requires a workforce and can create new jobs. 
 
Develop an appropriate skills base 
Partners in the scheme will be required to provide apprenticeships over the life of the scheme. 
 
Measureable carbon reductions 
Energy saving improvements will reduce energy waste and carbon. 
 
The Green Deal is a scheme that can help you make energy-saving improvements to your home or business, for example: 
insulation: solid wall, cavity wall or loft insulation 
heating 
draught-proofing 
double glazing 
renewable energy generation - solar panels or heat pumps
