Energy efficiency will become available to all, whether people own or rent their property. Liberal Democrat Energy and Climate Change Secretary, Chris Huhne has announced the delivery of another Lib Dem manifesto commitment. By 2015 up to 100,000 Green Deal workers could be employed in the effort to upgrade and insulate Britain's homes.

Commenting, Chris Huhne said "I want Britain to say goodbye forever to leaky lofts and chilly draughts. At a time of increasing gas prices energy efficiency is a no-brainer.

"It's also a massive economic and job opportunity which could help Britain's economy turn the corner. With up to 100,000 green jobs up for grabs over the next five years, and even more in the long term, this is about growing our economy in a way that's good for jobs, the environment and energy security."
