Government Funding for Boilers

Energy Schemes

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government energy efficiency scheme in Great Britain to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty. The scheme began in April 2013, and over time it has been amended. The latest changes to the scheme occurred in 2017, and apply to measures installed from 1 April 2017. The latest version of the scheme has been termed as ECO2t. Our main obligations include..

1 Carbon Emissions Reduction
Obligation (CERO)

Under CERO, we must promote ‘primary measures’, including roof and wall insulation and connections to district heating systems. Some CERO must also be delivered in rural areas.

2 Home Heating Cost Reduction
Obligation (HHCRO)

Under HHCRO, we must promote measures which improve the ability of low income and vulnerable household to heat their homes. This includes actions that result in heating savings, such as the replacement or repair of a boiler.
