New partnership to track UK’s journey towards improved energy efficiency


The UK Green Investment Bank (GIB) is partnering with EEVS Insight and Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) to help expand the quarterly Energy Efficiency Trends publications. GIB support will help to expand the contributor base, strengthen the research, and promote the publication’s insights to a wider audience.

Energy Efficiency Trends is operated by EEVS with support from BNEF. A rolling ‘state of the market’ publication, the results are based on a quarterly survey of both energy efficiency customers and technology and service providers. Reports are published quarterly with the eighth edition due out in September 2014.

Bill Rogers, head of strategy and co-managing director of Energy Efficiency at GIB, said: “Non-domestic energy efficiency has a critical role to play in improving the UK’s competitiveness and building a greener, stronger economy. This is an area of huge opportunity for the UK’s private and public sectors and we hope to see a quickening of the pace of progress in the months and year ahead.

“Any new, growing market needs a definitive source of data and analysis. EEVS / BNEF’s Energy Efficiency Trends already fulfils that role and, as the UK’s most active investor in non-domestic energy efficiency, we hope our support and insight will help to take it from strength to strength.

Ian Jeffries, head of information services at EEVS, said: “With Green Investment Bank support we will be ramping up and extending the reach of this important market research – great news for anyone interested in UK energy efficiency.

Tom Rowlands Rees, head of energy efficiency at Bloomberg New Energy Finance, said: “Results from the last Energy Efficiency Trends report show an increase in the share of projects using combination and third party financing. It is therefore fitting that we bring the GIB on board to help us navigate investment trends through their on-the-ground experience in the sector.
