This document sets out our requirements for implementing a monitoring regime to evidence Affordable Warmth Group status under the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO).

Evidencing Affordable Warmth Group eligibility is a both the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO) and the rural sub-obligation under the Carbon Saving Community Obligation (CSCO). A monitoring regime is one of four ways in which suppliers can choose to meet this requirement (the other routes for evidence are laid out in paragraph 1.1 of this document).

ECO is a government energy efficiency scheme which places obligations on larger energy suppliers to deliver energy efficiency measures to domestic energy users. ECO operates alongside the Green Deal.

The original version of this document was published on the 6th September 2013. It has been updated to reflect minor changes in our guidance in evidencing eligibility under ECO.
