Answer for Energy Company Obligation Consultation

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I will be responding to the Government's Energy Company Obligation consultation.

London has not received its fair share of ECO over the years and I am committed to trying to reverse this trend. My officers will be meeting with fuel poverty officers from the boroughs later this month to discuss how London can better attract ECO investment, and I will give consideration to a London uplift or ring fence.
