Deemed Scores & Insulation Surveys
What are Deemed Scores and Insulation Surveys?
Energy efficiency is a key part of Government policy for reducing the United Kingdom’s (UK) greenhouse gas emissions. This policy contributes to the Government’s wider commitment to cut greenhouse gases by at least 34% by 2020 and at least 80% by 2050. The Energy Company Obligation (ECO), first introduced in 2013, is an energy efficiency scheme for Great Britain. ECO places legal obligations on larger energy suppliers to deliver energy
efficiency measures to domestic premises, focusing on insulation and heating measures. The ECO3 scheme, which will run until March 2022, will mainly focus on low income and vulnerable households, helping to meet the Government’s fuel poverty commitments. Deemed scores determine the contribution certain measures make towards a supplier’s HHCRO obligation. Deemed scores are fixed scores for each measure type that are determined using three or four variables.
