Status

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has confirmed an extension to the ECO2 scheme of 18 months to 30 September 2018. Details of the changes to the scheme can be found in the government response to the ECO: Help to heat consultation.

Ahead of publishing our guidance for the extension to ECO2 (ECO2t) we are issuing two separate consultations.

Our ECO2t part 1 consultation closed on 23 November and we published our response on 30 January.

This consultation, ECO2t part two, focuses on changes to the ECO2 scheme confirmed in the government response to the ECO: Help to heat consultation. This consultation focuses on the following areas:

  • flexible eligibility – delivery to non-fuel poor private tenure households, where they are near to low income or fuel poor households, to facilitate multi-property projects for solid wall insulation
  • flexible eligibility – the requirement on local authorities to publish a statement of intent before making any declarations, and
  • rural minimum requirement – a supplier must deliver 15% of its CERO to premises in rural areas.

We have also published draft guidance to be read in conjunction with the ECO2t consultation part two document, to give as much detail on our proposals as possible. This can be found below.

We intend to publish final versions of the ECO2t guidance documents in April.

How to respond

This consultation ECO2t part 2 will be open for two weeks from 2 February 2017 to  midnight on 16 February 2017. We welcome your views on our proposals.
