The second phase of the Energy Efficiency Commitment (EEC) ran from 2005-2008 and aimed to encourage consumers to make domestic energy efficiency improvements in products such as insulation, energy efficient boilers, micro CHP, appliances and lightbulbs. It placed an obligation on the suppliers of gas and electricity to promote improvements in energy efficiency through measures provided to domestic consumers, especially consumers of low income. The overall target for EEC 2005-2008 improvements in energy efficiency was 130 fuel-standard terawatthours (TWh). It was superseded by the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target.
