Nigel Rees, GGF Group chief executive, said: "The sudden closure of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund is a disappointment as it was intended to last for a long period of time and offer stability, yet it has ended after roughly two months from its inception. It has done virtually nothing for the window industry as homeowners only qualified for the fund, if they were replacing single glazing.  This was a relatively pointless requirement because there’s very little single glazing in owner occupier homes.  It’s fair to say, no other industry had such a proviso put upon them and yet again the window industry has been offered practically nothing from this initiative. With such low impact during its existence there will be no difference to the window industry now that it has closed."
Rathlin Energy said: "There will be nothing to prevent protestors from protesting legally if they can find somewhere from where they can dodo it legally."
Director General of WPIF Alastair Kerr said: "This report has now confirmed what we have long said - that tax payers may have been subsidising power stations to burn wood in a way that creates more carbon emissions than burning coal."
Lord Ahmad commented: "Effective exploration and testing of the UK’s unconventional gas resources is key to understanding the potential for this industry – so the government is creating the right framework to accelerate unconventional oil and gas development in a responsible and sustainable way."
