Each energy retailer participating in the REES decides on what mix of approved energy efficiency activities it will undertake to meet its energy efficiency targets.

Energy retailers may contract out their energy audits and energy efficiency activities to third-party contractors, you may also contact these third party contractors directly (see below).

Third Party Contractors

Many obliged retailers use the services of third party contractors to undertake activities on their behalf and may
refer you to those contractors to organise energy efficiency activities and/or an energy audit in your home.

Third party contractors do not require authorisation from the Commission, with retailers obligated to ensure
contractors meet the REES Code requirements. Nevertheless, the Commission is aware that the following
contractors provide REES related energy efficiency activities and/or energy audits.
