The guide also contains a foreword from the Minister of State for the Department of Energy and Climate Change.

Cathryn Hickey, executive director for the National Skills Academy for Environmental Technologies, commented: This is an ideal publication for building services engineers involved with the Green Deal to carry with them at all times, so they can help their customers understand the options available to them.
