National Energy Action
About National Energy Action:
We work across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and with our sister charity Energy Action Scotland, to ensure that everyone can afford to live in a warm, dry home. In partnership with central and local government, fuel utilities, housing providers, consumer groups and voluntary organisations, we undertake a range of activities to address the causes and treat the symptoms of fuel poverty. These include:
Campaigning to ensure that the needs of fuel poor households are recognised and addressed
Researching and analysing the causes and extent of fuel poverty and developing policies which will address the problem
Developing and managing demonstration projects that show innovative ways of tackling fuel poverty
Providing advice and guidance to installers on good practice in delivering energy efficiency services to low income households
Developing national qualifications and managing their implementation to improve standards of practical work and quality of energy advice
Our work encompasses all aspects of fuel poverty, but in particular emphasises the importance of greater investment in domestic energy efficiency.
NEA also delivers practical measures to alleviate fuel poverty and improve domestic energy efficiency through Warm Zones CIC, its wholly-owned subsidiary company.
