ECO Energy Company Obligation

Supporting the poorest and most vulnerable households in the UK

What is ECO?

ECO, which stands for Energy Company Obligation, is a legal obligation placed on the ‘big six’ energy companies that requires them to promote improvements in domestic energy efficiency, including reducing emissions and heating costs.

In simple terms, ECO aims to help improve energy efficiency in the domestic sector. In particular to support the poorest and most vulnerable households and the hardest to treat homes, who need additional financial support to be able to make such improvements.
