The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is worth £640 million per annum and has been in place since January 2013.

The Government does not have figures on the number of gas boilers and heat pumps installed by each energy company in the last financial year. However, we do know that since ECO began, it has delivered around 3.3 million insulation and heating measures in around 2.3 million homes, up to the end of June 2021.

Obligated suppliers can deliver insulation and heating measures at any time during their obligation period.
