Data for the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) are currently available at local authority and parliamentary constituency level. We do not publish data at postcode level. However, the BB postcode areas cover a number of local authorities including Blackburn and Darwen unitary authority area, and the Green Deal and ECO quarterly Official Statistics release includes breakdowns by both administrative area and parliamentary constituency for the provisional number of ECO measures by obligation, including affordable warmth, up to the end of September 2013. See Tables 1.10a and 1.10b at:


The next quarterly Official Statistics release, covering activity up to the end of December 2013, is planned for publication on 20 March 2014.

Green Deal is not a grant regime. Green Deal Finance Plans are one element of the scheme. DECC will publish regional breakdowns of “live” Green Deal plans on 20 March 2014 and more detailed geographic breakdowns as the programme becomes more established.
