ECO 4 & ECO Flex – How to onboard

Act on Energy have made the decision to outsource the onboarding process  for ECO 4/ECO Flex/GBIS contractors, processing of ECOflex eligible applications requires significant administrative resource and it isn’t financially viable for us as a charity to deliver this process in full. We believe the new process will be an effective route to delivering ECO4 & flex to household’s across the areas we cover.

We are currently working with Instagroup and Agility Eco to deliver this service, if you wish to be involved you can make contact directly with the named providers. AOE are not involved in the onboarding process with them.

HUGS 2

Act on Energy are unable to onboard contractors to deliver works through the HUGs 2 programme, to be part of the delivery process you will need to engage with the Midlands Net Zero hub About Midlands Net Zero Hub – Midlands Net Zero Hub through them you can enquire about joining the DPS Dynamic Purchasing system to register as a contractor, and if successful you will be able to bid to deliver works when posted there by Local authorities.

Please note that some local authorities have procured directly with frameworks and contractors so you may not be able to access all areas.
