Energy UK plays a leading role in policy development across a range of electricity generation and energy retail issues. Sustainability and social responsibility are key elements of our work. We play an important part in developing schemes that deliver benefits to gas and electricity customers, whether through companies' voluntary initiatives or by advising on effective regulation.
Energy UK is a technology-neutral trade association, and our members represent all generation technologies used commercially in the UK - this includes a range of renewable energy technologies, as well as coal, oil, gas and nuclear power.
Key areas of current activity including electricity market reform, the national Smart Meter installation programme, the Green Deal scheme and other initiatives designed to improve the energy efficiency of people's homes and help reduce fuel poverty. We also work on environmental issues, planning, networks and on health and safety in the workplace across the generation industry.
