Features

Stroma Certification’s innovative ECO 2 Scoring Tool performs Ofgem-compliant ECO 2 scoring calculations (approved by the Building Research Establishment (BRE)). It helps to align with the Green Deal and ECO journey and functions as a standalone system, with the option to integrate it with your existing IT platform.

The calculations provided by Stroma's ECO Software help assessors to identify properties which qualify for ECO funding, producing reliable data on carbon savings, cost savings and In-Use Factors for compliant Ofgem reporting.

What are the features of ECO 2 Software?

Stroma’s ECO 2 (version 2.0.0.1) software allows users to:

  • Build an ECO Scores Report for £0.50 per measure (see pricing above)
  • Save ECO calculations as .seco files to load at a later date.
  • Add multiple measures to a single property and be able to calculate individual scores - a single step that also allows the user to change the measure order easily.
  • Retrieve the Stroma Site notes for each survey, which aids auditing requirements.
  • Select individual building sections and the percentage of install for various measures.
  • List previous ECO lodgments by account, along with an ECO ID to use at a later date.
  • Search for a boiler by; Make, Model, Boiler index number, or GC Number.
  • Calculate by; ECO ID, XML, RDSAPID or RRN.
  • Recognise extensions to the property and the ability to include these extensions within the calculation.
  • Follow a simpler structure, with explanatory guide features.

How does the ECO 2 engine work?

Stroma’s powerful ECO Engine performs the Ofgem-compliant ECO calculations to produce ECO Scores. This ensures vast time savings compared to manual calculations and adds to the remarkable cost efficiencies of using the ECO 2 Scoring Tool. Several different interfaces are available to best meet each user’s requirements.

The BRE-approved ECO 2 tool uses RdSAP as its core engine to produce a ‘before and after’ XML output. This data is also presented in ECO Scores Report, a ‘read-only’ PDF document suitable for using as evidence.

The XML generated by the ECO 2 engine is written in LIG-17.0 schema, the format used for EPCs. This means that the output can be imported back into an approved RdSAP engine, where it can be compliance-checked against scheme operating requirements and then used to lodge a post-installation EPC.

Can I integrate ECO 2 Software with my existing systems?

Yes. ECO Software works with Stroma Certification’s Tracker workflow management software or third party CRM systems:

Tracker

An interface to the tool is also available within Tracker which enables companies to view the certificates/reports lodged by each of their assessors; by right-clicking on any item within the list, users can open the ECO Scoring Tool and undertake compliant ECO calculations for the selected property. Tracker's ECO Scoring Tool functionality is identical to the Online Tool.

ECO Engine Web Interface

The ECO Engine can also be fully integrated with third party CRM systems through a web interface, for optimal efficiency. This approach can be used to undertake batch calculations (handling thousands of calculations in a single minute); or to produce and retrieve ECO scores in real time, as soon as an installed measure is entered into the CRM system. Built into the interactive service is an error handling and exceptions reporting function, which allows the user to interrogate errors and implement remedial actions.
