Many households from the UK are feebly insulated and draughty. Heating system runs longer time to keep houses warm as draughty walls penetrate a large amount of heat. It results in excess carbon emission along with increased energy bills.
The government has introduced ECO scheme (Energy Company Obligation) to overcome excess carbon footprint. This scheme compels big energy suppliers for delivering energy efficient home improvements to domestic premises in the UK. The scheme covers CERT (Carbon Emission Reduction Target) and CESP (Community Energy Saving Program). It divides into two phases ECO1 which was available from January 2013 to March 2015 and ECO2 which is currently present since April 2015 and will long last until March 2017. Under ECO2 scheme, big energy suppliers need to achieve 18.4 megatons of carbon reduction within a span of two years.
The ECO target is proportionate among big energy suppliers as per their respective share in electricity marketplace and domestic gas provision. The ECO2 has divided into three obligations CERO (Carbon Emission Reduction Obligation), HHCRO (Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation) and CSCO (Carbon Saving Community Obligation).
WorkWork Ltd is an active participant of ECO2 and under CERO offers free installation of primary measures such as wall insulation which includes both solid and cavity wall insulation, loft insulation, room in roof insulation and many other secondary measures. Solid wall insulation is restricted to either internal wall or external wall insulation. The fundamental behind free funding is that the recovery of most expensive home improvements can lead to achieving most of the carbon savings. It also achieves improved quality of properties along with value appreciation across the UK.
The company is authorized green deal provider and advisor. They can perform GDAR (green deal advice report) for the property which is the primary document required for CERO. EPC (energy performance certificate) is a secondary document for CERO funding. Few qualifications need to be fulfilled by household before availing funds. It includes premises occupancy during installation or within 30 days of installation completion for house owners and tenancy agreement with proper occupancy confirmation by tenant and owner for the tenant. The funding amount varies as per the size of the property and calculated through reduced standard assessment procedure (RdSAP).
