The Green Deal was a government-run energy efficiency scheme that helped consumers make energy saving efficiencies to their homes. RECCo manages the ongoing systems and data for this legacy service. The GDCC facilitates GB Green Deal plans by providing a point of reference and interaction between relevant Green Deal Users.

The Energy Theft Tip-off Service (ETTOS) is a service operated by Crimestoppers for members of the public to report suspected theft of gas and electricity anonymously. Crimestoppers securely notify the tip-off to the relevant gas or electricity supplier for investigation. If the supplier cannot be identified, Crimestoppers will inform the appropriate Gas Transporter or Electricity Distribution Network Operator for further analysis.
