What do NEA’s members say about being a member of NEA?

Derby City Council

“As a local authority, we benefit from the information and guidance that NEA produces with regard to home energy efficiency and fuel poverty – in particular, through regular briefings and newsletters, and NEA Focus members’ newsletter. We also benefit from the sharing of information on good practice by attending NEA’s Fuel Poverty Forums and other events. All in all, it’s definitely money well spent!”

Richard Murrell, Principal Home Energy Advisor, Derby City Council
