Electrical course attendees likely to be looking out for Green Deal details

The details of the government's Green Deal will be unveiled in parliament today (December 9th), with technicians who have taken electrical courses likely to be interested to see how it may affect their future job prospects.

Energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne explained that the initiative is all about taking the "hassle" out of upgrading people's homes to become more energy efficient.

But engineers may need to have training such as electrical courses to carry out work on people's homes, as Mr Huhne stressed the importance of consumer protection.

"Accreditation, a quality mark, insurance-backed warranties - there'll be no place for cowboys to get a foothold in the Green Deal," he remarked.

Mr Huhne claimed the project will be a "great business opportunity", with related employment expected to be boosted.

Meanwhile, energy minister Charles Hendry announced that producers of large-scale renewable power are set to learn how much state support they will receive by around July 2011, in order to remove "uncertainty" among investors.
