The ECO for the big six energy suppliers is also being launched in early 2013. It is in three parts:


Affordable Warmth Obligation
To provide heating and insulation improvements for low-income and vulnerable households (but social housing tenants are not eligible for affordable warmth).
There are complex eligibility criteria for this means-tested scheme.

Carbon Saving Obligation
To provide funding to insulate solid-walled properties (internal and external wall insulation) and those with ‘hard-to-treat’ cavity walls.
This is not means-tested but can be used in conjunction with the Green Deal. The aim is to provide enough support to make these relatively expensive measures cost-effective.

Carbon Saving Communities Obligation
To provide insulation measures to people living in the bottom 15% of the UK’s most deprived areas. It is expected that this element of ECO will particularly benefit the social housing sector.
Through ECO, the government aims to help 230,000 low-income households or those in low-income areas. Of the expected investment by suppliers of £1.3bn per year, there will be a 75:25 split between the carbon and affordable warmth obligations.
