There are around 4,500 Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP) eligible areas throughout Great Britain. These areas include housing of a variety of types of tenure, including private sector housing. Within these defined areas companies with CESP obligations are free to choose the dwellings supported.

Ofgem, as the administrator of CESP, ensure companies meet their overall obligations but does not have a role in targeting schemes or promoting particular tenures.
