Green Deal Women's Panel

A group of female energy consumers who advise the government on ways to influence public opinion on the Green Deal.

Role of the group

The aim of the panel is to:

  • consider the best channels and opportunities for promoting the Green Deal to women, including the possibility of enlisting ‘advocates’ or utilising the media to reach consumers
  • explore what the actual critical path points for delivery are going to be. For example, should government work with particular organisations to achieve this goal?
  • identify the trigger points for stimulating take up of Green Deal
  • consider how DECC and others could most effectively market the offer
  • provide recommendations to DECC ministers, in the form of a short report, on options for raising awareness of, and driving demand for, the Green Deal
