Green Deal 'Could Hinder Loft and Cavity Wall Insulation' Knauf Insulation Government's Green Deal is forecast to be 93 per cent lower than under the present system. UK (I- Newswire) January 13, 2012 - A fall in loft and cavity wall insulation installations across the UK has been forecast under the Green Deal by the government's own figures. According to data revealed by construction publication Building.co.uk from the Department of Energy and Climate Change, the level of loft insulation installation work being carried out under the Green Deal is forecast to be 93 per cent lower than under the present system. Furthermore, cavity wall insulation rates could fall by as much as 70 per cent. Predicted reductions in the number of homes being helped under the Green Deal has been put down to low projected uptake of the scheme, with popular initiatives such as CERT set to finish by the end of this year. The news follows the publication last month of figures for the number of homes taking part in insulation subsidy schemes in England and Wales, with a 90 per cent fall to 19,142 properties forecast for 2012 in comparison to the previous year. Shadow energy secretary Caroline Flint said: "This government is so out of touch that when families are facing record energy bills and a bitter winter, it has cut help for people trying to do the right thing and make their homes more energy efficient."
