NES ECO Online 4.0.0 now approved by BRE on behalf of Ofgem ready for ECO 2

We are pleased to announce that NES ECO Online version 4.0.0 has now been approved by BRE on behalf of Ofgem. This means we are now ready for the second stage of ECO known as ECO 2 which will run from 1st April 2015 to 31st March 2017. 

Now that we are approved, the next step is to update the software and this means there will be some downtime. ECO Online will be unavailable from 5pm on Tuesday 31st March 2015 whilst we complete the update, and the new version (4.0.0) will be available from 10am on Wednesday 1st April 2015. 

Please note that ECO jobs installed from 1st April 2015 and reported under ECO 2 must be scored using RdSAP 9.92 data. If you have any un-finalised jobs created using RdSAP 9.91 data and if the installation date entered is “Not yet installed”, then these jobs will not get processed in ECO Online 4.0.0. If you need to generate ECO reports for these jobs, then you must finalise them before 31st March 2015. This will not affect any jobs already finalised.

Full details of the update will be outlined in the release notes which will be available when ECO Online version 4.0.0 is live.
