What is the Energy Company Obligation (ECO)
The ECO scheme can pay for efficiency improvements to homes. The government’s impact assessment expects that energy suppliers will spend £3.2 billion on improving peoples homes by 31st March 2015.
This has been put into place by the Government under the ‘Electricity and Gas (Energy Company Obligation) order 2012 and is administered by OFGEM E-Serve.
The scheme has a carbon saving target of 20.9m tonnes CO2 by 31st March 2015.
ECO is split into 3 sections:
HHRCO: The Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation pays for items such as replacement boilers for low income and vulnerable households. This includes a target to save £4.2 billion in home energy costs from this section of ECO alone.
CERO: The Carbon Emissions Reduction Obligation is directed towards ‘able to pay’ households and includes installing insulation to homes with solid walls or hard to treat cavities.
CSCO: The Carbon Saving Communities Obilgation provides efficiency improvements to Rural and Low income areas that have been defined by the Department of Energy and Climate Change.
