Green Deal Arrangements Agreement (GDAA)

The provision of governance arrangements under the Green Deal (previously summarised in the Green Deal Arrangements Agreement (GDAA)) are being transitioned into the Retail Energy Code (REC) from the 1st September 2021. After this date, the GDAA will no longer be active, and any Green Deal Participants engaging in Green Deal Plan setup or management must register as GDCC Users under the REC. From the 1st September, any parties with queries should contact the Retail Energy Code here.

The Green Deal Arrangements Agreement (GDAA) is a multi-party agreement between electricity Suppliers and Green Deal Providers. It sets out the governance for payment collection and remittance of Green Deal charges.

An elected Panel comprised of GDAA Parties is responsible for overseeing the GDAA including considering:

  • Applications to become a new Party;
  • Operational issues and change requests;
  • Derogations;
  • Breaches and defaults in relation to the GDAA; and
  • Appeals and disputes.

The GDAA was published on 1st October 2012 and is available for download from the right-hand side of this web page.

The latest versions of the Operational Procedures that underpin the Agreement are also provided, along with Change Proposals which have been implemented but not yet published in an updated version of the GDAA.

Following the 1st September 2021, the GDAA will no longer be active, and any queries on Green Deal governance arrangements should be made to
