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.
NEA’s technical team provides consultancy services to a wide variety of organisations, including housing associations, manufacturers, network operators and government on the best use of technical solutions to alleviate fuel poverty. Placing low-income and vulnerable householders at the heart of what we do, we work with academic and industrial partners to develop and trial products with the ultimate aim of providing solutions to tackling fuel poverty in homes which are difficult or expensive to heat. The team evaluate a range of interventions including technologies used for heating, insulating and controlling energy in the home. Findings from all of our work are communicated to those with commercial and political influence and used by others in campaigning to end fuel poverty.
