Energy UK’s proposed ECO+ scheme will work by providing partial subsidies for building fabric energy efficiency measures to households in council tax bands A to D.
These subsidies will be funded through government investment, Energy UK has suggested.
The trade body noted that in contrast to the existing ECO scheme, an obligation on energy suppliers, ECO+ as a voluntary programme could unlock more private funds.
The proposed model, combining partial subsidies with consumer contributions may help decarbonise Britain’s buildings faster.
ELN has contacted BEIS for comment.
