The Green Deal is the Coalition Government’s flagship policy to help households make energy efficiency improvements to their properties and pay for all or some of the work over time through the savings in their energy bills.
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) works alongside Green Deal to provide additional support for packages of energy efficiency measures, including solid wall insulation or hard to treat cavity wall insulation – measures which are socially cost effective, but unlikely to be fully financeable by Green Deal finance under the ‘Golden Rule’. ECO also provides free insulation and heating measures to low- income and vulnerable households and communities.
Delivery of ECO is the responsibility of energy suppliers – but the framework incentivises suppliers to look for the most cost effective routes to deliver their obligations. Which is where you come in!
Energy UK and the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) are co-hosting an ‘ECO Roadshow’, to bring information about ECO to a city near you. Together, key representatives from central and local government, energy suppliers, Green Deal Providers and installers and delivery partners will stage a informative and interactive event that will help you discover more about ECO and, more importantly, highlight the opportunities it presents for consumers and the whole supply chain in your area and beyond.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear about the policy, its aims and objectives, how ECO is already being delivered and how to get involved in delivering it in your area. Case studies from DECC-funded pilot projects already underway or completed will also be showcased in the cities where they are taking place.
The dates and locations of the events are:
Brighton 12 March | Bristol 13 March | Birmingham 9 April | Sheffield 16 April | Cardiff 18 April | Glasgow 23 April | London 25 April
All the events will run from 11.00 to 16.30 and will be held in central locations in each city. Refreshments will be provided.
Bespoke event agendas and speakers will be circulated shortly, but in the meantime, to register your interest in one or more of the above, please RSVP by email as soon as possible to: firstname.lastname@example.org
