Business Supporters Group

The aim of the Business Supporters Group is to provide an effective channel of communication between NEA and its members on current issues impacting on domestic energy efficiency.

The Business Supporters Group has been in existence for over 20 years and is very important to NEA. A strong relationship with the business community is vital to ensure the fuel poor can benefit from current schemes and technological developments. NEA’s campaigning activities would not be so effective without industry support.

Members of the Group are businesses with an interest in the domestic energy efficiency market including energy supply companies, scheme managers and consultants, boiler manufacturers, insulation and central heating installers and component suppliers, land developers and manufacturers of renewable technology products.

NEA welcomes new members to the group and would be delighted to discuss the benefits we can offer to your company through the Business Supporters Group.
