Development and Delivery
NEA seeks to see an end to fuel poverty in the UK. In order to achieve this vision NEA uses its expertise and other resources to deliver a range of practical projects which seek to demonstrate innovative ways of tackling fuel poverty. In doing so NEA works in partnership with the Charity's members and other relevant organisations.
NEA's practical projects and training services are delivered by the Directorate of Development and Delivery.
NEA obtains sponsorship and funding from a range of sources to enable the Charity to meet its objectives to work with public, private and community sector partners to develop projects which seek to establish good practice in bringing affordable warmth solutions to low income and vulnerable households. Projects are evaluated so that lessons learned may be used to inform NEA's policy recommendations to government, consumer bodies, industry regulators, local government and other relevant bodies.
The Directorate of Development and Delivery is also responsible for NEA's training services which seek to improve the capacity of partner organisations to deliver high quality energy advice to householders and to improve energy efficiency delivery skills in the industry.
The Development and Delivery team consists of staff with a range of relevant skills including specialisms in partnership development; community engagement; technical understanding of energy efficiency and heating measures; training and assessment skills; fuel debt advice and understanding of the health impacts of fuel poverty.
