The Department has begun a productive dialogue with representatives from the private rented sector, which we will continue up to and post the launch of the Green Deal in 2012. The sector is also represented on one of the four key industry-led forums for the Green Deal.

Additionally, the Department has commissioned a piece of qualitative research considering domestic and non-domestic tenants' and landlords' reactions to the Green Deal. Findings from the work will be available in autumn 2011 in DECC's consultation paper on the Green Deal.
