NEA’s research and policy teams have over 25 years’ combined experience of developing expert insight into fuel poverty, energy efficiency and related fields. This is strengthened by working closely with colleagues within NEA and with external partners.
We work on a variety of projects at any one time, using research methods that cross the quantitative and qualitative paradigms as well as a range of technical techniques. Research ranges from primary and secondary research to project and product evaluation and policy analysis.
- Social indicator and geographical mapping
- Primary and secondary social (quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods) and technical evaluation
- Trends analysis
- Energy Market Analysis
- Policy assessment
- Stakeholder engagement
- Energy and Building Physics Assessments
- Product testing
We have conducted research alongside:
- Central and local governments
- The entire breadth of the energy sector
- The EU
- Private sector product manufacturers and installers
This collective breadth of insight helps to ensure that NEA is the expert voice on behalf of the fuel poor, helping the charity in achieving its vision of no one living in fuel poverty.
