CITB-ConstructionSkills has welcomed the announcement from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) that the Energy Act has become law, setting in stone the legal framework for the Green Deal. But the Sector Skills Council and Construction Industry Training Board called on industry to act now to prepare for Green Deal business opportunities.
Mark Farrar, Chief Executive of CITB-ConstructionSkills said:
“DECC’s announcement that the Energy Act has become law is a critical milestone in the journey to the Green Deal. As the Act recognises, prioritising consumer protection is crucial – consumers must be able to have confidence in Green Deal work in order for the programme to be a success. This is a key driver behind our work as part of the Green Deal Skills Alliance (GDSA) to develop a training and qualification framework for trainers, providers and installers.
