How efficient is YOUR home?


What is the ECO4 grant?


ECO4 is the fourth phase of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme. It is a government-funded program that aims to improve the energy efficiency of homes in the UK. The scheme is administered by Ofgem, the UK's energy regulator.

ECO4 provides grants to energy suppliers to help them install energy-efficient measures in homes. 

The measures that are eligible for funding include:

  • Loft insulation
  • Cavity wall insulation
  • Solid wall insulation
  • Double glazing
  • Heating controls
  • Boiler upgrades
  • Renewable energy technologies, such as solar panels

To be eligible for funding, households must meet certain criteria, such as being on a low income or being in fuel poverty.

ECO4 is a significant program that has the potential to make a real difference in the energy efficiency of homes in the UK. The scheme is expected to help over 1 million homes by 2026.
