Big Energy Saving Week, funded by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, is a collaboration between Citizens Advice, Energy Saving Trust and other voluntary and charitable organisations. The main aim of the week is to give consumers all the advice and assistance that is out there in relation to their fuel bills.
We are funding Gold Partners, Silver Partners and Bronze Partners across Great Britain to deliver events throughout Big Energy Saving Week. A map of these partner organisations and a list of their contact details is below (Silver and Bronze Partners coming soon).
Anyone can be a Big Energy Saving Week partner, see our partner resources page for more information.
Below are more partner organisations who are involved in the week.
The Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) ensures that the country has secure energy supplies that are reliable, affordable and clean. It also tackles climate change.
Energy Saving Trust gives impartial, accurate and independent advice to communities and households on how to reduce carbon emissions, how to use water more sustainably and how to save money on energy bills. Through Big Energy Saving Week we aim to help householders that are ‘feeling the pinch’ and having difficulty paying their energy bills by providing them with independent and impartial advice about what they can do, as well as pointing them to the appropriate sources of help.
Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) is the national umbrella body of the Rural Community Action Network (RCAN), which operates at national, regional and local level in support of rural communities across the country. ACRE provides focus for national advocacy and works strategically with government and national third sector organisations to reflect a rural perspective in policy and practice.
Ofgem is the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets. We are a non-ministerial government department and an independent National Regulatory Authority, recognised by EU Directives. Our principal objective when carrying out our functions is to protect the interests of existing and future electricity and gas consumers. We do this in a variety of ways including:
- promoting value for money
- promoting security of supply and sustainability, for present and future generations of consumers, domestic and industrial users
- the supervision and development of markets and competition
- regulation and the delivery of Government schemes.
We work effectively with, but are independent of, government, the energy industry and other stakeholders within a legal framework determined by the UK government and the European Union.
