What is ECO? And How Does it Affect Commercial Buildings in The UK

The Energy Act 2011 introduced legislation which included the Green Deal and the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) is a new energy efficiency scheme for Great Britain. ECO operates alongside the Green Deal and places obligations on larger energy suppliers to deliver energy efficiency measures to domestic energy users.

The policy aims to provide additional support to deliver energy efficiency measures that are part of a cost-effective strategy for achieving the UK’s carbon targets but which may not be fully financeable through the Green Deal, and to provide subsidised measures to low income and vulnerable households to help alleviate fuel poverty.

The ECO requires suppliers to obtain a report by a Chartered Surveyor to identify appropriate energy efficiency measures where a ‘Green Deal’ report is not available and to identify a ‘hard to treat cavity’.
