The implementation of the Green Deal, which is intended to help people get cheap gas and electricity bills by improving the UK's energy efficiency, could radically change the country's housing stock.
This is according to sustainability and communications director at Sustain Worldwide Gordon Miller, who said it could allow many homes and businesses to invest in improving their property by removing the upfront cost of the renovations.
He explained people could be able to claim up to £10,000 from a newly-established green bank at a low interest rate, which would be repaid by the savings made from cheaper energy bills.
While the expert acknowledged many of the details have still to be worked out, Mr Miller said: "If it is administered well and a community rather than an individual house approach is encouraged it has the potential for wide scale adoption across Britain."
Previously, he had explained how improvements such as double glazing, new boilers and insulation should be covered under the plans.
