Policy and Research

NEA’s policy and research work raises awareness of the impacts of fuel poverty and develops solutions to make energy costs more affordable.

Our work is focused on four priority areas:

  • energy markets and vulnerability
  • energy efficient housing
  • improving health, and
  • technology and innovation

We work closely across the nations and with our sister charity Energy Action Scotland.
