Energy Campaign: Resources

Scammers continue to target those looking to reduce their bills and make their homes more energy efficient by providing misleading information about the efficiency of different measures, the availability of grants and funding and the safety of consumers’ existing energy efficiency measures.

The key aim of this year’s energy campaign (14-27 August) will be to empower consumers and to raise awareness of the mis-selling of energy efficiency or energy saving products, particularly in advance of rising energy bills during the autumn/winter months.

The campaign will run for two weeks:

  • Week 1 (14-20 August) – Know Your Consumer Rights
  • Week 2 (21-27 August) – Know Your Energy Efficiency Products

Partners can download resources below.
