Energy UK responds to DECC's consultation on ECO 1.2
In its response to DECC, Energy UK emphasises the importance of beginning planning for ECO post-2017 when the current system comes to an end. This is so the industry can avoid any breaks or unnecessary rises in costs for customers during the transition from one scheme to another. Energy UK also urged DECC to ensure policy certainty by sticking to plans laid out in the Autumn Statement 2013 as part of a long term framework.
Planning for future energy efficiency schemes needs to start without delay and stakeholders should agree now the steps needed to meet future targets. Energy UK is pleased to respond to the consultation on proposed changes to ECO 1.2, and hopes that preventing delays will avoid adverse impacts on costs and knock on effects for the customer.
