Leading agriculture energy consultancy rebranded to NFU Energy

Agricultural energy consultancy FEC Energy has officially rebranded as NFU Energy.

The firm was purchased by the National Farmers’ Union in August 2017 and helps farmers to buy and sell energy, generate heat and electricity, use energy more efficiently and reduce the compliance burden of energy regulation.

The NFU has worked with the firm for nearly 20 years and currently has more than 1,500 sites benefiting from low price energy deals through its buying groups.

‘Strengthening the brand’

NFU Energy managing director Tim Crocker said: “As the company expands, strengthening our brand with the NFU will help build on the relationships we already have with farmers and growers.

“It underlines our commitment to maintaining our position as a leading provider of energy-related consultancy to farming and agricultural businesses.

While the name of our company will be changing, it will remain business as usual; delivering market-leading services to farmers and growers across the country.

“Our top team of engineers and account managers understand the farming industry and come with the same expertise and practical guidance, covering anything from energy audits, feasibility studies and accreditations.”

NFU director general Terry Jones added: “Since NFU Energy was purchased in 2017, it has been able to strike even better deals with suppliers and set up new and mutually beneficial trading relationships between the energy and agricultural sectors, which will ultimately benefit farmers and growers.”
