What We Do

We're an independent, national charity based in Milton Keynes, and have been at the forefront of improving the use of energy in buildings since 1988. We aim to give people, organisations and government the knowledge, support and inspiration they need to understand and improve the use of energy in buildings.

We do this through:

  • Delivering practical projects – using our experience and technical expertise.
  • Inspiring action – providing building owners and occupiers with the encouragement, advice and real-life examples to achieve better performing buildings.
  • Advancing knowledge - supporting collaboration to drive forward the frontiers of knowledge, innovation and practice.
  • Identifying and addressing market failures using evidence, analysis and ideas.

Everything we do, we do to achieve this aim.

Organisations trust our independent, comprehensive and cost-effective advice to improve all aspects of demand, generation and management of energy in new and existing buildings.

The work we do has impact and helps towards an energy-literate UK. Have a look at our annual impact reports:
