ECO4 Stakeholder Engagement

We believe that engaging with stakeholders when designing and delivering schemes brings real benefits to how we administer our schemes.

Our forums and groups are intended to gather contributions from a range of stakeholders on the main operational and delivery issues in ECO4.

ECO Supply Chain Working Group   

The ECO Supply Chain Working Group (ESCWG) promotes the consistency and quality of information that the supply chain collects about ECO measures, and standardisation of the documents used to do so. It is also a place for the supply chain to provide us with feedback on our administration of the schemes, such as on the forms we publish. 

Members of this group include suppliers, retrofitters, assurance bodies, and organisations further down the supply chain such as software developers. We hold quarterly core group meetings, where 20-30 representatives attend to enable deeper discussion. All organisations who are part of the ECO supply chain are welcome to join our ESCWG mailing list, where they can contribute to agendas and receive meeting minutes, as well as wider ECO updates. 

Please email if you are interested in joining the working group.

ECO Quarterly Supplier Forum 

We established the ECO Quarterly Supplier Forum to make sure that compliance and delivery issues relating to the scheme are communicated effectively between Ofgem and obligated suppliers.

The group explores ways to mitigate risks and resolve issues raised through the group, referring matters to other ECO stakeholder forums as appropriate.

Core topics that the group consider are:

  • Aggregated supplier progress towards ECO targets
  • Measure notifications, processing and approval issues
  • Quality and standards, including technical monitoring, audit activity, and PAS 2030 and 2035
  • Delivery risks and issues
  • Guidance developments.

ECO Industry Fraud Prevention & Compliance Committee

This committee provides a forum for Ofgem, obligated energy suppliers and other industry representatives to discuss fraud and compliance risks associated with the ECO scheme. It also agrees mitigating actions to reduce the risk of fraud. Outputs from this meeting are not made public.

We take allegations of fraud against the scheme very seriously. To find out how to report suspected fraud, and our role in preventing it, please see our section on counter fraud.
