The Department has no plans to revise June 2012's full impact assessment for the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) for two reasons: firstly, producing an impact assessment is a lengthy and intensive process that requires robust analysis of updated evidence, which the Department cannot undertake frequently; and secondly, the Department will be publishing a consultation impact assessment for the next phase of ECO in due course, which will supersede the previous impact assessment's projections.
