The East of England Regional Energy Efficiency Awards were launched in September 2016 following the changes in Government Energy Efficiency Policy. Previously known as the East of England Regional Green Deal & ECO Awards, these awards were set up in 2014 to help recognise the work being carried out by the energy efficiency sector in the East of England in their delivery of the Green Deal Finance Initiative and Energy Company Obligation Scheme.

The Energy Efficiency measures introduced by the Government following the Energy Act 2013, included the Energy Company Obligations (ECO) Scheme, the Green Deal Finance Initiative, and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). These measures together help homeowners reduce their energy bills, tackle fuel poverty and reduce Carbon emissions.

The aim of the Energy Efficiency Awards is to provide public recognition for the excellent work the Energy Efficiency sector is doing in implementing these schemes. And to help encourage best practice within the Energy Industry as it works to improve UK housing stock.
