CCC publishes Frontier report on the cost of capital for household low-carbon investments

This report, commissioned by the Committee on Climate Change, assesses current financial products available to households, identifies barriers to financing low-carbon investments such as electric vehicles and heat pumps, and sets out policies that could reduce the cost of capital for these investments. The report shows that there is potential for Green Deal interest rates to fall by around two percentage points if lending is increased, and suggests policy measures that could encourage uptake. It also finds that measures to understand and transfer risks around future technology performance could help reduce finance costs.
