  • 2. What is ECO? – ECO is the Energy Company Obligation. It is a new mandatory requirement under the Energy Act 2011 for all large gas and electricity suppliers to fund energy efficiency improvements to dwellings in the UK. – ECO replaces two previous schemes - CERT (Carbon Emissions Reduction Target) and CESP (Community Energy Savings Programme). – Energy suppliers who built up excess contributions under CERT and CESP can carry credits over into ECO, subject to certain qualifying circumstances.
  • 3. When does ECO start? – ECO started on 1st January 2013 and the first three ‘phases’ will run until 31st March 2017. After that date, further targets are likely to be set by Ofgem on behalf of the Government. – The full rules and procedures for the running of ECO are contained in the Ofgem document: ‘Energy Companies Obligation (ECO): Guidance for Suppliers (Version 1.1)’ dated 17th July 2013.
