Not just a load of hot air?

The Green Homes Grant scheme has just been launched, but will it deliver?

The government’s track record is not good.   The previous scheme, the “Green Deal”, was launched at the end of 2012 with much fanfare.  I listened with some scepticism as the minister Greg Barker claimed that it would be a world beater, but by the time the scheme was quietly closed in 2015, only 15,000 “Green Deals” had been taken up.
