The author argues that the proposed Energy Bill's Green Deal policy in Great Britain is set to neglect the poor and vulnerable people as it is not designed to meet the needs of low income consumers even if it has the potential to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. She thinks that the Green Deal undermines the logic of risk-based pricing because of the unpredictability of the credit risk of future occupiers. She claims that prepayment customers will not benefit from deal.
