The Green Deal framework is designed to be driven by the market and therefore the interest rate is for the market to determine. The final Green Deal and energy company obligation (ECO) impact assessment, published on 11 June 2012, models three interest rates—6.5%, 7.5% and 9.5% for the domestic sector. The assumed rate in the impact assessment for the non-domestic sector is 8%.
