The charts below give an overview of energy companies’ progress towards their targets in the previous Energy Company Obligation period (ECO2). This ran from 1 April 2015 to 30 September 2018. From 1 April 2017, the energy companies’ progress towards their targets includes ECO2t obligations. We update the information in these charts on a monthly basis.
We’ve included a breakdown of overall progress towards:
- Carbon Emissions Reduction Obligation (CERO including CERO-Rural)
- Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO)
- Home Heating Minimum Requirement (HHMR)
- Provisional Solid Wall Minimum Requirement (PSWMR)
Economy Energy and Flow Energy have traded all of their obligations using the trading provision in Section 30A, therefore we have chosen not to show them in these charts. Spark Energy have ceased trading however they had previously traded all of their obligations so are not referenced in this report as well. Please note that as these new suppliers can only deliver measures from 1 April 2017, they do not have a CSCO or CSCO rural obligation.
Extra Energy have ceased trading, however we will continue to outline their delivery position as of the point they ceased to trade. This is because the measures delivered are active in the obligation period to which this report refers.
A supplier's compliance position is only indicative until we have made our final decision about whether suppliers have achieved their obligations at the end of ECO2.
As CSCO final determinations have now been made, we are no longer including CSCO or CSCO Rural data in our reporting going forward. Suppliers may re-elect excess CSCO measures to count towards their other obligations in the coming months.
ECO3 commenced on 3 December 2018 and runs to 31 March 2022. Measures that meet the scheme rules can be delivered from 1 October 2018. Suppliers must notify us of any measures installed between 1 October 2018 and 3 December 2018 by the end of February 2019. Any measures completed on or after 3 December 2018 must be notified by the end of the month following the month in which installation of a measure was completed. The first set of ECO3 charts will be published in February 2019.
