New website to identify CSCO areas Nov 20, 2014

CSCO areas website

Ofgem, the regulators of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) have launched a free online tool designed to aid installations of energy efficiency measures under the Carbon Savings Community Obligation (CSCO).

The tool can be used to confirm whether postcodes are eligible under CSCO, to identify CSCO eligible areas and to validate CSCO specific information.

Jos Mister of Green Deal Installer Hub explained:

“After almost two years of working with clunky spreadsheets or subscription only websites, this new tool from Ofgem is long overdue and will give Installers looking to identify CSCO households the reassurance that they are working from the exact same data set as the ECO regulator. The website is free and easy to use and we would recommend our members give it a try!”

The new tool is entirely free, with no requirement to log in or register. Ofgem hope that it will help the wider supply chain and consumers to identify areas that may be eligible for the installation of energy efficiency measures under CSCO.

The CSCO Area tool:

  • Identifies postcodes in areas eligible for insulation measures
  • Provides assurance that measures have been/will be delivered in an eligible CSCO area
  • Enables easy data retrieval through maps and exports
  • Can be used remotely through a tablet or smart phone
  • Provides information about the eligibility of a postcode specific to the three time periods of ECO: ECO1, ECO1.2 and ECO2, and helping installers and Energy Companies to forward-plan.

CSCO requires Energy Companies to install insulation measures in properties in areas of low income and in vulnerable households in rural areas. These areas are defined by legislation at an ‘LSOA/Datazone’ level.

This tool will also be used by Ofgem when checking the eligibility of installations claimed against CSCO.
