ECO4 Innovation: New Measures and Products

ECO4 includes a mechanism designed to support the delivery of innovative measures where benefits and improvements may not otherwise be captured through current partial project and full project scores, via the 'New Measures and Products (NMAP)’ routes.

There are three routes to supporting innovative measures and products. The ECO4 Guidance: New Measures and Products (NMAP) provides guidance on the Innovation Measure, Standard Alternative Methodology, and Data light Measure routes.

Submitting an application

Applications should be submitted to the New Measures and Products section of supplier’s Huddle   folder. Suppliers should carefully read through the NMAP guidance to understand the requirements for applications. In particular, suppliers should look at what evidence is required to support any claimed improvement. 

Please note that only obligated suppliers can submit an innovation application to Ofgem.

Technical Advisory Panel

A  technical advisory panel (TAP) has been set up to review innovation measure applications and make recommendations to Ofgem to approve or reject applications. Please refer to the NMAP guidance for details on the role of the TAP. The Table below outlines our schedule for upcoming TAP application rounds, including application deadlines and TAP meeting dates. This schedule may be altered, and any changes will be updated here.

Assessment Methodology for Substantial Innovation Measures

The assessment methodology that we will use to carry out the assessment for a substantial innovation measure (for a 45% uplift), can be found at the bottom of this page.
