ECA Benefits

In the world of energy consultancy, staying ahead of the curve is not just about being informed; it’s about being empowered.

At The Energy Consultants Association (ECA), we understand this and have tailored our member benefits to ensure you’re not just surviving, but thriving.

Here’s a closer look at what you’re missing out on, if you haven’t yet joined the ECA:

Educational Webinars: Your Knowledge Powerhouse

Our webinars offer expert insights on vital issues and topics that directly affect our members, including Commission Claims Defence, Ofgem Non-Domestic Reviews, and Flexible Purchasing guidance and more.

These sessions are crucial for maintaining high levels of industry knowledge, which you can then pass on to your customers, solidifying your offering and authority in the industry.

Free Review of Terms & Conditions

Our legal experts are at your disposal to thoroughly assess your current terms and conditions or implement new ones, ensuring they align with industry standards and regulations.

You will receive clear guidance and recommendations to improve your terms in order to best protect your business against unnecessary and avoidable risk.

Regulatory Guidance: Navigating Changes with Ease

The energy industry is constantly evolving and being subjected to supplier and regulatory shifts. The last several years have seen more changes in this industry than the previous decade.

Are you aware of recent and impending developments such as suppliers auditing TPI’s and ADR scheme changes etc?

Our members benefit from the expertise of our industry specialists who make sense of these changes, offering guidance, information and recommendations for seamless implementation into your business.

Networking & Sound boarding: A United Front

Since deregulation, the TPI industry has been without a meaningful sense of community. Arguably given the lack of need when it comes to collective interests. 

The changes and implementations from Ofgem, suppliers and The Energy Ombudsman has now created the need for a collective TPI voice. 

Sharing best practice on how to tackle industry specific issues such as supplier processes and the shaping of future regulation.

Our members gain support from an association that understands the challenges brokers and consultants face, providing fair responses and resolutions with a collective voice.

Commission Claims Defence: Supporting Your Business

Facing commission claims can be daunting.

Don’t go it alone or pay over the odds for legal advice that lacks industry specific experience.

Our executive team will offer guidance on how to respond to energy claims letters, offer insight on your case and provide tips to help protect your business.

Digital Membership Badge

As a proud ECA member, you will have the opportunity to prominently display the ECA badge, symbolising your commitment to professional excellence and industry integrity. 

It signifies your dedication to upholding the highest standards and being part of a community that values ethical practices, transparency, and continuous improvement.

What’s next for the ECA?

Here’s what you can look forward to:

  • Informative Workshops and Webinars: Building on the success of our previous sessions, we are planning a series of informative workshops and webinars. These events will cover a range of topics, equipping you with the latest insights and best practices in energy consultancy.
  • Members’ AGM: We’re excited to announce that our Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held in person this year on March 20th at The Manchester Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel. This event will be a fantastic opportunity for networking, sharing ideas, and collectively shaping the future direction of the ECA.
  • Expansion of the Executive Team: To better serve our growing membership and to enhance our advocacy efforts, we’re expanding our executive team. This addition of expertise and leadership will enable us to more effectively represent your interests and drive industry-wide improvements.
  • Showcasing Our Members: Recognising the incredible work our members do, we plan to showcase and promote your achievements to our wider community. This initiative aims to highlight success stories, share best practices, and celebrate the contributions of our members to the energy consultancy sector.

Each of these developments is a step towards strengthening our association and enhancing the value we provide to you, our members. Stay tuned for more details on these exciting opportunities and how you can get involved.
