According to the statistics, only 17 window installations had taken place using Green Deal Finance by November 2014.
The number of windows installed using ECO funding included 999 via the Carbon Saving Target element, 1,408 via the Carbon Saving Community element and 1 via the Affordable Warmth element.
These figures represent only 0.2% of the overall measures installed with ECO funding.
Meanwhile, 38% of ECO measures were for cavity wall installation, 23% were for boiler upgrades and 26% were for loft insulation.
The statistics also show that there was an overall decrease in the number of Green Deal Assessments in December 2014.
The figure was 29% lower than the number in November.
The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) has expressed its concern that the schemes are not benefiting the replacement window industry.
Recent reports suggest that consumers have been disappointed by the schemes as they have had to wait for cashback payments, some of which have failed to materialise.
This may have inspired a disinterest in the schemes.
Despite this, the DECC claim that the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) is secure and continuing to offer consumers access to energy efficiency measures.
