Green Deal economics don't add up

My financial analysis of the Green Deal and it's Golden Rule (presentation located here) show why the Green Deal will only finance insulation of cavity walls and uninsulated lofts.  These are already being financed by CERT.  

The government recently announced £200M funding to boost early Green Deal take up.  This amounts to funding 20,000 projects of £10,000 ie not much, but it's a start.  let's wait to see how they intend to spend this money.

The Energy Company Obligations which are supposed to fund difficult to treat houses may provide enough to fund a maximum of 50,00-100,000 refurbishments a year, whilst there are about 6.6 million hard to treat houses.  

The Green Deal falls a long way short of what is required.  See also click.
