To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to the Government's Clean Growth Strategy, what estimate he has made of the amount and proportion of the £3.6 billion Energy Company Obligation that will be allocated to the West Midlands metro area; over what time period that allocation will be spent; and what estimate he has made of the number of homes that will benefit from that allocation.

Up until September 2018, 132,429 households received ECO measures within the West Midlands. This equates to 117 households per 1,000 households receiving ECO measures compared to 72 households per 1,000 households for Great Britain. These published statistics can be found here (Table 4.4): https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/household-energy-efficiency-statistics-headline-release-february-2019

BEIS does not hold information on the amount of Energy Company Obligation (ECO) funding that is allocated to individual areas. Neither does BEIS project where spending will occur in the future.
