Since its operational beginnings in early 1990, the National Energy Foundation has been at the forefront of improving the use of energy in buildings. The charity aims to give people, organisations and government the knowledge, support and inspiration they need to understand and improve the energy performance and comfort of the buildings they design, build, manage or occupy.
To celebrate its 25 years, the Foundation is planning a number of events and activities over the next 12 months. The aim is to maximise the impact achieved through the Foundation’s work over its anniversary year and both recognise and celebrate the many and varied contributions it has made over its first quarter of a century.
The programme of events will develop as the year progresses.
Chief Executive, Dr Kerry Mashford, commented:
“Improving the use of energy in buildings is the National Energy Foundation’s overarching objective, and we are very proud of our 25-year history. Over the years, the Foundation and its staff have worked tirelessly for the better use of energy in buildings and have led the way in numerous cutting-edge initiatives that have later become mainstream – for example, the National Home Energy Rating scheme, which was the precursor to Government Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) and subsequently Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs).”
