Executive Summary

The UK government officially launched the Green Deal, a policy aimed at spurring retrofit activity in the domestic and non-domestic UK real estate market, on October 2, 2012 following a 23 month lead-in period. In total the government has allocated £125 million ($198 million) to incentivize early adoption of the Green Deal. Will the initiatives included in the Green Deal encourage the adoption of energy efficiency measures in the marketplace? Should firms follow the likes of British Gas and Carillion and invest in their business to service the Green Deal? Verdantix’s analysis finds that CEOs, CFOs and Heads of Strategy at energy services suppliers considering investing in the Green Deal need to heed the lessons of the energy performance contracting model before committing capital to this new market.
