Key Features Include:



SMART Property Assessment iPad App also supports the surveying and provision of measures under the three specific components of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO).



Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO) – provides funding for the installation of measures that will result in a heating saving, including the replacement or repair of a qualifying boilers to low income and vulnerable households.

Carbon Saving Community Obligation (CSCO) – provides funding for insulation measures and connections to district heating systems for consumers that live within an area of low income, including a subset of low income and vulnerable households living in rural areas.

Carbon Emissions Reduction Obligation – provides funding on hard to treat homes (primarily solid wall insulation and hard-to-treat cavity wall insulation) irrespective of the location of the property or the means of the consumer.


One of the challenges in supplying measures to a householder under ECO, is determining which category of ECO fits best for each measure being installed. Some consumers will, by virtue of their means and their address, be eligible for funding under all three streams of ECO. To complicate matters, if certain ‘primary’ measures are being installed such as solid wall insulation other ‘secondary’ measures such as loft insulation and glazing are then eligible for funding. Because Energy Suppliers need to deliver set targets under each ECO stream, the price they are willing to pay in exchange for a ton of carbon or £1 saved is likely to vary depending on the category of ECO each measure can be attributed to.


To support our clients who are delivering ECO work, the latest version our SMART Green Deal & ECO iPad App includes the following features:
