The ECO4 Scheme was established by the government to help households reduce carbon emissions and achieve the goal of becoming 100% carbon neutral by 2050. The ECO4 schemes provides grants to fund energy efficiency upgrades to homes reducing emissions, electricity and energy bills. These grants can contribute towards new heating systems, loft or cavity wall insulation and other measures designed primarily to increase energy efficiency and reduce fuel poverty and energy costs (source: Home: ECO4).
