What is ECO?

The energy companies obligation (ECO) is the replacement for the carbon emissions reduction target (CERT) and the community energy saving programme (CESP) programmes.

Both of these came to a close in December 2012.

Eco operates across Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales).

It operates alongside the green deal and focuses on both vulnerable consumer groups and hard-to-treat homes.

Eco consists of three distinct targets obligations that larger domestic energy suppliers must meet by 31 March 2015 to avoid a significant fine.


The 3 ECO obligations

The three Eco obligations are;

1. Carbon emissions reduction obligation (CERO): focuses on the installation of solid wall and hard-to-treat cavity wall insulation.

2. Carbon savings community obligation (CSCO): promotes the installation of insulation of the property and connections to district heating systems in areas of low income and rural areas.

3. Home heating cost reduction obligation (HHCRO): promotes the installation of measures focusing on the repair and replacement of boilers, to homes in receipt of qualifying benefits, to achieve a decrease in the overall cost of space heating.

Eco obligations targets

The targets for each obligation are;

– Carbon emissions reduction obligation (CERO) – 20.9 million tonnes of CO2 carbon savings
– Community obligation (CSCO) – 8.8 million tonnes of CO2 savings
– Home heating cost reduction obligation (HHCRO) £4.2 billion of cost savings.

The targets are divided between the obligated suppliers proportionate to their share of domestic customers.
