Energising Advice Report

Male consumer obtaining information online

Delivered by Independent Consultant Catrin Maby

As a Foundation we have a particular interest in consumer confidence and consumer information on renewable energy and energy efficiency and for consumers, the ability to gain independent advice is paramount.  We commissioned this scoping study to review the information and advice available to consumers on renewable energy and energy efficiency in the home.

The study was carried out by Dr Catrin Maby OBE, an independent consultant and researcher, with many years’ experience in energy advice delivery and strategy and the resulting report was launched on 9th December 2020 via a live Zoom event.

The launch saw Catrin Maby provide an overview of the report including our recommendations for the governments of the UK and for the energy advice and information sector. The launch also saw responses to the report from Dr Alan Whitehead MP, the Shadow Green New Deal and Energy Minister, and Baroness Natalie Bennett of the Green Party, as well as a Q&A session.
