What is
The ECO4 Scheme?

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, including the latest iteration ECO4, is a government initiative aimed at providing free energy-saving measures to low-income households and vulnerable individuals. By enhancing energy efficiency and reducing emissions, the scheme plays a crucial role in advancing the nation’s sustainability goals.

To achieve the UK’s net-zero target by 2050, it is imperative to promote energy-efficient practices, particularly among those who may lack the financial means to invest in such improvements independently.

The ECO4 scheme, spanning from 2023 to 2026, allocates substantial funding from medium and larger energy suppliers to facilitate energy efficiency enhancements in approximately 300,000 homes at risk of fuel poverty nationwide.

To receive this funding, you first need to determine whether you fit the required eligibility criteria.
