Representing your interests

The Major Energy Users' Council started life in 1987 as the then nationalised fuel supply industries prepared for privatisation and larger customers got ready for the introduction of competition in gas and electricity supply.

It was on former National Coal Board Chairman Sir Derek Ezra’s advice that Andrew Bainbridge founded the Council. Andrew remains today as President. Andrew Buckley our Chief Executive, who has had a lifetime’s experience in providing information and advice to larger energy users is now the driving force behind the development of the MEUC.

Today MEUC representatives sit on government, regulatory and supply industry committees. We represent Members views as relayed to us through the meetings and report back on developments and initiatives.

From time to time and when issues of pressing concern emerge we set up Action Groups to harness members’ views and present them to decision makers. The Energy Credit Action Group formed in the wake of the Credit Crisis is an example. Currently we have set up an Energy Markets Policy Group in light of the impending changes to taxation rules and a Water Market Policy Group to help steer members through the forthcoming Water Competition.
