Each Home Counts Review Newsletter 17th February 2017

Hello!                

The Review Team are continuing work towards implementation of the Review’s recommendations following the launch event. We are pleased to see industry stakeholders getting involved in the workstreams and will be supporting the development of implementations plans for each workstream.

The Review: Feedback
The opportunity to provide feedback on the Each Home Counts report concluded on Tuesday 31st January.  The Review team received a large number of responses which we are currently working through. We would like to thank everyone who provided us with feedback on the Review report.
Finance and Insurance workstream
Stephen Huller, lead on the Review’s Finance and Insurance workstream, met with members of the Senior Executive at the Green Deal Finance Company (GDFC).  He was interested to hear their plans for the relaunch of this welcome funding mechanism and invited them to input into this workstream to ensure that the outcomes are easy to navigate and provide easy engagement by all stakeholders.
Consumer Protection/Code of Conduct workstream
Peter Broad and Liz Male, joint workstream leads for Consumer Protection/Code of Conduct will be holding a crosscutting meeting with those stakeholders who have expressed an interest in funding low energy retrofit work. This meeting is intended to discuss the scope of the Code of Conduct work.
This week… Next week…
