For almost 20 years, Age UK (formerly Age Concern) and E.ON have worked in partnership delivering energy related community projects and services.
E.ON is continuing to use their energy expertise to provide energy solutions to vulnerable older people and has invested significant resources into a project called EnergyRight. EnergyRight focuses on improving energy efficiency in the homes of older people through research, providing information and training on energy efficiency, and local events.
In 2009, the EnergyRight programme worked with 15 local Age Concerns delivering ongoing energy efficiency projects and also ran EnergyRight Week in October with a further 10 local Age Concerns, running events for over 3,200 older people.
We also conducted a national research survey talking to over 2,000 older people to understand their energy efficiency needs and behaviour and produced an energy efficiency information guide that was distributed to over 30,000 people. You can download this information guide, Save more pay less, from the box on the right.
For more information, email our corporate team on firstname.lastname@example.org, visit the E.ON community website.

A download is a document (like a research report, a leaflet, or an application form) that can be transferred from our website to your computer. You can download a file, view it on your screen, print it, or save it to your computer.
PDF stands for ‘portable document format’.
Most downloads on this website are PDFs. We use this format to ensure that the document looks the same on everyone’s computer (website pages, by contrast, appear differently depending on how people have set their computer up).
Computers use a program called Adobe Acrobat Reader to download PDFs. If you try clicking on a link to download a PDF and it doesn’t work, you will need to install Adobe Acrobat Reader onto your computer.
The process is quite straightforward and is free.
PDFs cannot be changed.
Downloads will open on your computer in a new browser window.
Inside this window (below all your web browser menus), there will be a toolbar with options for you to print or save the document.
Close the browser window to return to the Age UK website.
We have made every effort to make our PDFs accessible to screen readers. Please ensure that you have downloaded the latest version of Acrobat Reader from the Adobe Reader website to ensure that accessibility options are included in your version of the programme.
You can use Adobe Reader to read a PDF out loud with the following shortcut keys:
You can convert a PDF document into a text file for use with other software and hardware such as Braille printers by opening the PDF and choosing ‘Save as text’ from the File menu.
