Charity information

The National Energy Foundation

The National Energy Foundation is an independent charity based in Milton Keynes, which has been at the forefront of improving the use of energy in buildings since 1988.

Founded 1988

  • Mission statement

    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.
    * Providing practical tools to measure and reduce energy consumption and lower CO2 emissions, thereby helping to protect the environment.
    * Supporting those unable to heat their homes due to inefficient systems or structures.

    We do this through capacity building, research, innovation, technical support and tackling fuel poverty.

  • Aims

    The National Energy Foundation aims to:

    • To improve public understanding about the safe, efficient and innovative use of energy and, related to the use of energy, the small scale generation of renewable energy.
    • To protect the environment through reduction of the use of energy in buildings and consequent lowering of carbon dioxide emissions.
    • To alleviate poverty by improving the use of energy in buildings occupied by those currently unable to afford to heat them to an adequate level.
