Energy Company Obligation (ECO4) scheme

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO4), is a government energy efficiency scheme for Great Britain, administered by Ofgem and set to run until 31 March 2026.

The main objective of ECO4 is to improve low energy-efficient housing stock occupied by low-income and vulnerable households.

Under the scheme's flexibility criteria, we can refer private households to the scheme if they are assessed to be living in fuel poverty or on a low income and vulnerable to the effects of living in a cold home.

We've partnered with the National Energy Foundation to promote and administer ECO4 on our behalf. Referrals can be made through local GPs and Citizens Advice, and individuals can also self-refer contacting the National Energy Foundation on 0800 107 0044 or email

To find out more about the scheme and eligibility criteria, be sure to read our Statement of Intent (pdf, 897kb) - and you can also contact Click here for a list of approved suppliers that operate in the area.
