CoRE and NEF set up joint working

25th October, 2013

Partnership will bring refurbishment and energy expertise together

The Stoke-based Centre of Refurbishment Excellence (CoRE) and the National Energy Foundation (NEF) have signed a partnership that will see the two working together. NEF chief executive Dr Kerry Mashford will also join CoRE’s board.

The partnership includes:

  • Working together to develop initiatives to facilitate closer working between business, government and community organisations on all aspects of energy efficiency in buildings

  • CoRE’s training and education events, usually held in Stoke-on-Trent, also being held at NEF’s Milton Keynes centre, and vice versa

  • Identifying opportunities to attract joint funding which would not normally be available to NEF as a charity or to CoRE as a not-for-profit SME.

Mashford said: “CoRE gives us a very high quality way of sharing more widely than before what we know from decades of practical experience and research, and turning this into long-lasting skills and understanding that will transform the effectiveness of the national refurbishment programme.”
