16. The Technical Annex describes some alternate assumptions and their impact on baseline performance

17. NHER Stock Assessor - this uses an older version of RdSAP, v9.83 (which uses SAP 2005).

18. The only sub-66% efficient boiler that could be modelled using RdSAP is a pre-1979 floor-mounted boiler, which has an assumed efficiency of 56%.

19. There are however other types of boilers and fuels that show greater efficiencies.

21. How the Green Deal will reflect the in-situ performance of energy efficiency measures ( DECC, 2012)

22. Currently this research is predominantly focused on older, traditional housing; robust results are however available from established sources such as Historic Scotland and SPAB.

24. For example, at the time of writing this Peer Review DECC issued a tender invitation for 'Research to provide better estimates of solid wall insulation savings through improved understanding of heat losses' (December 2012), which it anticipates will inform updates to RdSAP, SAP and the Green Deal.
