What is the Energy Company Obligation?

The government ECO Scheme (Energy Company Obligation) was first introduced in 2013. It requires larger energy companies to allocate a portion of their profits to help fund energy-efficient upgrades in UK homes and reduce carbon emissions.

ECO4, the latest iteration of the Energy Company Obligation, commenced in April 2022 and runs until 31st March 2026; it is intended to be accessible to a wider range of fuel poor households to ensure the least energy efficient homes receive greater support.

ECO funding provides significant opportunities for installers keen to provide the energy efficiency improvements that help households reduce their bills and reduce their carbon footprint. Whether you are an installer of insulation, solar and heating systems, we can help you navigate your way through the paperwork to ensure that your business is paid promptly for installing ECO measures.
