Energy Company Obligation (ECO)
ECO (Energy Company Obligation) is a programme to improve energy efficiency and was introduced into the United Kingdom in 2013.
It is designed to give the larger energy suppliers a legal obligation to deliver energy more efficiently to their customers' homes by reducing carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty.
ECO is focusing on customers with a low income or who may be vulnerable. Hard to treat homes are also to be focused on.
