The Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) is a domestic energy efficiency programme introduced in Jan 2013 which works alongside the Green Deal to provide added support for packages of energy efficiency measures and improvements, it is currently worth £1.3 billion every year.
These measures can help with cutting down energy loss from a building and lead to less energy use. Support includes insulation and heating packages to low income and vulnerable households and insulation measures to low income communities.
In essence the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is split into three parts:
The HHCRO or ‘Affordable Warmth’ Obligation intends to provide both heating and hot water saving measures and insulation to low-income and vulnerable households.
This provides insulation measures to households in specified areas of low income. It also makes sure that 25% of each energy supplier’s obligation is used to upgrade more hard-to-reach low-income households in rural areas.
