Energy Company Obligation: ECO3, 2018-2022

Closed 29 Apr 2018

Opened 30 Mar 2018


We’re seeking views on the future design of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, a programme that delivers energy efficiency measures to low income and vulnerable households across Great Britain. 

This includes:

  • the scheme moving to a 100% Affordable Warmth scheme for fuel poor, low income and vulnerable households
  • the energy efficiency and heating measures that can be delivered under the scheme
  • the proportion of the scheme that can be delivered under Local Authority Flexible Eligibility
  • how ECO can support innovation

Energy suppliers, energy efficiency manufacturers, installers and trade bodies, groups interested in fuel poverty issues and local authorities may have an interest in this consultation. Members of the public with an interest in energy efficiency and fuel poverty issues may also wish to respond.
