Energy efficiency

Using energy more efficiently is the fastest and most sustainable way of reducing customers' energy costs, sustaining supplies for the long term and securing reductions in emissions of carbon dioxide.

Following the completion of the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) and the Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP) at the end of 2012, we are now delivering our obligations under the government-mandated Energy Company Obligation (ECO) energy efficiency scheme:

  • Through ECO, like all major energy suppliers, we are required to identify particular vulnerable groups of customers and deliver specific energy-saving building improvement measures; and
  • In 2013/14 we expect to fund and manage more than 125,000 energy efficiency installations in homes throughout Great Britain under the scheme.
