Holding answer received on 20 March 2018

The Department will shortly consult on the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) scheme that will run until March 2022. We propose focusing the scheme on low income and vulnerable households to reduce fuel poverty and support more innovation and as the Clean Growth Strategy published last October stated we will continue to enact support for home energy efficiency measures to 2028 at least at the current level of ECO funding.
