Energy Company Obligation: ECO3, improving consumer protection

Closed 6 Aug 2019

Opened 9 Jul 2019


We're seeking views on proposed changes to the current Energy Company Obligation (ECO3) scheme. This includes:

  • Incorporating the TrustMark Government Endorsed Quality scheme into ECO3, as a route to demonstrating compliance with the most up to date relevant PAS standards and to ensure a sufficient consumer protection process and guarantees are in place
  • Technical changes to the way First Time Central Heating is treated under the scheme.

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.
