AIM Energy Action Group
How can the AIM Energy Action Group help your museum?
Your AIM membership gives you access to the Energy Action Group (EAG) which, working in partnership with several other non-profit organisations, provides a way for museums and heritage attractions of all sizes to:
- Participate in an energy buying basket
- Choose from a range of 100% certified and traceable UK renewable electricity and gas
- Get help in reducing energy consumption
- Transition to renewable energy
- Implement Energy Management strategies
- Get help with billing issues
How does collective energy purchasing work?
Once a year the EAG runs a group energy buying basket – the principle is simple and relies on good buying relationships and well organised bulk tendering to help cut energy costs. All AIM Members are free to participate as they choose and can decide on the offer that suits them best, and a small percentage of income from the AIM Energy Basket is reinvested to support AIM’s services and activities.
The EAG is now in its 8th year and continues to grow, with 178 individual organisations participating in the most recent Energy Buying Basket.
Joining the AIM Energy Action Group
To join the AIM Energy Action group, complete a Letter of Authority and send it, along with a scanned copy of your latest energy bill, to the Energy Action Group (see contacts below).
What happens next?
EAG will review your energy bills, contact your current supplier and check all your supply details, including consumption levels, contract end dates, and meter and site details. It’s important to validate this information as errors can interfere with the switching process and be costly. EAG will then provide no-obligation energy quotes which you can sign up for as an individual organisation. If you decide to change energy suppliers, you will not be cut off!
EAG will provide you with:
- A dedicated account manager
- Cost reduction services
- Smart metering
- Green energy
- Consumption and tariff analysis
