The Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation

The Energy Act 2011 made provisions for the development of a Green Deal  and a new Energy Company Obligation (ECO) to replace the existing Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) and the Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP), which will both expire in 2012.

The development of the Green Deal and ECO reflects the urgent need for a  step-change in our approach to energy efficiency in existing domestic and non-domestic buildings. This will be critical to meeting our carbo emissions and fuel poverty targets. 

This document has three main purposes:

  • to explain the context for the development of the Green Deal and ECO;
  • set out our proposals for the Green Deal and ECO and;
  • highlight key issues, for consultation.
