What is MEUC Membership?

The MEUC is a dedicated corporate membership organisation for major energy and water using companies in industry, commerce and the public sector; buying, managing, understanding and reducing energy, carbon and water costs and consumption.

The MEUC provides a unique community and hub of energy expertise from which a wide range of industrial, commercial and public sector organisations have continued to benefit for over 30 years.

Weekly, monthly and quarterly publications keep members abreast of key issues and market developments. The sharing of experiences and information (that comply with EU Competition law) can be vital when considering new aspects of any energy strategy.

Networking is a crucial part of any membership organisation. The sharing of experiences and information is vital when considering new aspects of an energy strategy. Informal networking takes place at our events, but more formal networking and introductions can be made. MEUC attracts a wide base of supporting organisations that provide supply, procurement and management expertise and services. Whilst the exhibitions provide the obvious opportunity to keep up to date with new products and offerings, networking is extremely valuable to resolve issues that may occur as a customer.
