CESP obligation on Suppliers & Generators • Save 19.25 Million lifetime tonnes of Carbon Dioxide • Encourage “whole house” solutions/Area Based • Target most deprived areas = Income Domain of the Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) • OFGEM report c6.1 MtCO2 delivered 122,337 measures in 66,977 homes by June 2012 • 433 schemes submitted by obligated parties; accounts for 97% of target if all delivered 3

ECO & Green Deal – beyond 2013 Energy Company Obligation 2013-15 & beyond • c£1.3bn/year of which £540m for vulnerable • c£760m/year Carbon Emission Reduction all Tenure - Target = 20.9 Million Lifetime Carbon Dioxide - Primarily Solid Wall; hard to treat cavities • c£350m/year Affordable Warmth PRIVATE ONLY - Target = £4.2bn cost savings - Broadened eligibility criteria SPG + WTFC - Primarily Heating and insulation, include lofts and cavities • c£190m/year Carbon Saving Communities all Tenure - Target = 6.8 Million lifetime Carbon Dioxide - Poorest areas, and includes social housing - Loft, cavity and other insulation measures 4

Key challenges - Vulnerable Vulnerable people in fuel poverty & Priority groups • do not advertise themselves • are often the hardest group to reach /access • often miss out on grants and services available • many will be part of new ECO target group Identifying & engaging the hard to reach . • Many people in London ‘High Risk’, but due to cultural differences and barriers of language, may also be classified as ‘Hard to Reach

Finding the sources of funding to pay for: • assessments, • energy efficiency measures, • income maximisation 5

London Warm Zones - Outputs


Over 57,000 homes in London received measures through the scheme

Over 220,000 assessed/energy audits

New and replacement space and water heating systems

Insulation measures such as cavity wall, loft, draught proofing

Over £10 million in new or additional welfare benefits

Developed an effective model which - Works closely with key partners including Councils and Communities

Received wide spread recognition from key stakeholders - National Government (Departments of Energy and Climate Change) - UK Regulator (OFGEM) - Social responsibility (Business in the Communities) - Regional Government Greater London Authority/RENEW scheme

Are there any lessons learnt?


UK Government flagship scheme Green Deal 2013 onwards - Households install energy efficiency measures such as heating/insulation at no up front cost - Repayments made over period of time via customers electricity bill - Only if customer meets “golden rule” where projected savings on energy bills are greater than the cost of the Green Deal loan

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) - 2013 to 2015 £1.3 billion per year nationally from Energy Suppliers - £540m per year on Affordable Warmth - helping low income/vulnerable - £770m per year carbon saving obligation to support Green Deal

Warm Zones discussions with EDF Energy on setting up an ECO pilot - Targeting Individual private vulnerable households with - Similar eligibility criteria (low income, vulnerable) - Similar measures (Heating and insulation)
