An event in Stratford-upon-Avon for the Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation special briefing happened last week.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and  Ofgem addressed 180 members of the National Insulation Association (NIA).

The function presented NIA participants with the most up-to-date information of the Green Deal and ECO along with a chance to have their own concerns and queries answered by a  panel specialist of speakers from DECC and Ofgem.

Neil Marshall, CEO of the NIA, stated: "The event was arranged by us to ensure that our members were made fully aware of the key elements and requirements of the Green Deal and ECO and had the opportunity to ask questions and seek clarity on important issues first hand."

"It also provided our members with the latest information to help them maximise the opportunities available under these new schemes.”

The event also included speakers from various organisations that includes the Solid Wall Insulation Guarantee Agency (SWIGA), National Insulation Association (NIA), Gemserv, and Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency (CIGA).
