Energy Company Obligation and Flexible Eligibility

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government energy efficiency scheme in Great Britain that helps tackle carbon emissions and fuel poverty.

About the scheme

Under the scheme, some energy companies have to provide funding for energy efficiency improvements to eligible households. If you are on qualifying benefits you may be eligible. Find out more on the OFGEM website.

The Greater London Authority is also allowed to declare additional households as eligible for ECO funding, under the ECO Flexible Eligibility scheme.

To allow us to declare eligible households, we must publish a Statement of Intent setting out the eligibility criteria for funding. We have delegated the issuing of individual declarations to a small number of London boroughs, mostly those whose advice services we are supporting. 

To find out if you are eligible please consult the Statement of Intent and get in touch with your local advice service
