Detail of outcome
This document sets out the government’s response to its consultation of 24 July 2013 on amendments to the Electricity and Gas (Energy Companies Obligation) (ECO) Order 2012. These amendments included facilitating the transfer of “excess actions” between obligated suppliers, making clearer in the legislation that ECO measures can be installed in a period when a property is not occupied and, amending the legislation to allow certain people in receipt of Universal Credit to be eligible for support under the home heating cost reduction obligation.
This consultation seeks views on a small number of technical amendments to the Electricity and Gas (Energy Companies Obligation) Order 2012. The amendments are designed to ensure the ECO Order is aligned with changes in the broader policy landscape, and to provide greater clarity on certain aspects of the Scheme to aid its continued smooth delivery.
