ECO reporting working group

We want the information that obligated suppliers collect from the supply chain about Energy Company Obligation (ECO) measures to be as consistent as possible.

To encourage this, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) established the ECO reporting working group. This includes representatives from Ofgem, Energy UK, obligated suppliers, the National Insulation Association, insulation installers and others.

Together we have produced a series of documents which should help to streamline the ECO reporting process for the supply chain. These include:

In addition, we’ve produced new and updated templates based on improvements suggested by the working group.

Some of the key benefits are:

for new entrants to the market

Clarity on some of the key requirements set by Ofgem and/or obligated suppliers

for firms working with two or more obligated suppliers

A single set of reporting templates and one reporting process for most measures (subject to contractual arrangements)

for most firms

There should be a reduction in time spent scanning and renaming files.

All Ofgem requirements referred to on this page relate to the ECO guidance

Supplementary note

ECO places a legal obligation on larger energy companies to deliver energy efficiency measures. Ofgem provides guidance on how these measures should be delivered in order to comply with legislation. Suppliers are responsible for ensuring that they, and any members of the supply chain acting on their behalf, comply with the applicable requirements of the law.
