Under Energy Company Obligation (ECO4), medium and larger energy suppliers are obliged to fund the installation of energy efficiency measures in households.
The obligated energy suppliers work with installers to introduce efficiency measures into homes, such as loft or wall insulation, or renewable energy heating measures.
ECO4 supports lower-income and vulnerable domestic owner-occupiers and private sector tenants that meet benefit eligibility criteria or are declared eligible by local authorities or energy suppliers under a flexible eligibility route (ECO Flex) which uses set criteria on household vulnerability to living in a cold home. The scheme also supports measures in EPC E-G rated social housing and D-G social housing for innovation measures.
