Quotes

Event manager Chris Eldridge said: "After six successful years as Greenbuild Expo it was clear that there is a real need for information on making commercial buildings more energy efficient so it's a natural progression to launch an event dedicated to energy efficiency, particularly with the changes in legislation to Part L 2014, The EU's Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and The Energy Act 2011, which over the next three years will have a major impact on the way commercial buildings are managed and let. Moving the show to November avoids the election and will give time for the built environment and industry to have a clearer picture of what the implications of any policy changes are and what lies ahead. It's also ideal as we move into winter and need to use more heating and lighting, so energy efficiency will be in the forefront of visitors' minds."
Fletcher commented: "While interest free loans and free assessments are likely to boost interest in the Green Deal, it is likely that these will be insufficient on their own to encourage households that have not previously been interested in the Green Deal and energy efficiency to take action.  Further incentives, such as Council Tax rebates, will be required to deliver the 1m upgrades to domestic properties targeted in the Strategy."
