ECO Innovation Showcase
February 06, 2019
13:00 – 17:00 GMT
BEIS Conference Centre, London
After the success of the first workshop held in April 2018 during the ECO3 consultation period, the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Sustainable Energy Association are hosting an Innovation Showcase to demonstrate the benefits of deploying innovative solutions under ECO. Obligated energy suppliers have the opportunity to deliver up to 10% of their obligation through delivering innovative measures to eligible households. The event will provide an opportunity to showcase your solution, network with obligated suppliers, BEIS and OFGEM and understand how the innovation routes will work.
There are two innovation routes under the scheme:
- Demonstration Actions – measures that have previously been tested in a laboratory setting and now require testing at scale in a live environment, or are marketable products that are being sold in the market and may need additional support.
- Innovation Score Uplifts – a measure that is different from those previously delivered under supplier obligations by having an improved material that can demonstrate, for example, improved energy efficiency performance or an improved installation technique. The measure will receive a 25% uplift from the measure type’s existing deemed score to encourage it to be delivered under the scheme.
For more information about the innovation routes please read https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/energy-company-obligation-innovation-guidance
The event is open to obligated energy suppliers and developers and manufacturers of innovative measures which could help to achieve the Government’s objectives for the scheme. As such, please share the event with colleagues and partners who may be interested in attending.
As part of the event, we are inviting delegates to take part in a short innovation pitch. The pitch can be for an innovative product, technology, delivery mechanism or other solution which could help to deliver the Government’s objectives for ECO3. If you are interested in pitching, please send a summary of your innovation to Samantha.firstname.lastname@example.org (maximum 300 words).
Please note that spaces are limited for the event and priority will be given to obligated suppliers and those pitching.
