Big plans, bright future

Cabinet Decision: 11th July 2013
Title of Item/Report
Green Deal Energy Company Obligation Update
Record of the Decision
Consideration was given to a report relating to the progress of the partnership created to deliver external wall insulation measures to private sector homes across Stockton on Tees via the national Energy Company Obligation.

The report also described financial implications associated with a technical issue that had arisen in respect of the scheme.


1. the progress of the Community Energy Saving Programme and Energy Company Obligation schemes, the delay to the scheme, and the actions taken to enable Community Energy Solutions to restart work.

2. the potential further financial implications of the complications described in the report. These financial implications would be considered in more detail as part of the medium term financial plan to a future meeting.
Reasons for the Decision
The recently launched ECO scheme is suffering from delays as a result of complications with an utility provider. The recommendations were therefore to raise awareness with Cabinet Members of the problems within the scheme and the need to adjust the financial resources already allocated to support a way forward. In addition there were potentially further liabilities across the entire ECO scheme if the anticipated resolution mechanisms failed. Any such further liabilities would need to be considered as part of the Council's Medium Term Financial Plan.
