Elmhurst were pleased to be invited to the ECO Delivery Group meeting held in Westminster on the 7th February at which BEIS (the new government department that is responsible for ECO) presented their response to the consultation for ECO2t, the transition period between ECO2 and ECO3 that runs between April 2017 and October 2018.
