ECO guidance

Here you can access guidance and publications on the ECO scheme.

What our guidance does

It outlines:

  • how we determine which suppliers are obligated
  • how obligated suppliers can meet their obligations
  • when and what suppliers need to report on, and
  • information on ECO measures.

What it doesn’t do

It’s not intended as a definitive guide to the legislative provisions of The Electricity and Gas (Energy Company Obligation) (Amendment) Order 2017 (ECO2t Order).

The documents below apply to all measures installed on or after 1 April 2017.

Any measures installed between 1 April 2015 and 31 March 2017, should comply with our ECO2 guidance and associated documents. Any measures installed before 1 April 2015, should comply with our previous guidance, which is available in the overview of previous schemes section of our website.

If you’re unable to find the document you are looking for, contact the ECO team who will be happy to help.
