Leading agriculture energy consultancy FEC Energy has officially rebranded as NFU Energy, bringing together the NFU’s leading role in the farming industry with its newly acquired engineering and energy expertise to deliver the best deal for farmers and growers.

NFU Energy, purchased by the NFU in 2017, will continue its strong track record of helping farmers to buy and sell energy, generate heat and electricity, use energy more efficiently and reduce the compliance burden of energy regulation.

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 said: “The two organisations are a great fit. NFU Energy is owned by farmers, delivering for farmers. It fully understands the needs of farming and growing businesses and is committed to the success of agriculture and horticulture.

“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.”
