The article examines the Green Deal, the focus of the energy and climate change policy of the British government. Its broad outline is contained in the Energy Bill, while most of its content will be covered by secondary legislation. A potential hiatus is anticipated as existing installation programmes such as Warm Front, the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target and the Community Energy Saving Programme (Cesp) are ending in 2012, while Green Deal starts in 2013.
