Protecting consumers and
A Supervisory Panel oversees the REAL Consumer Code. The members of the Panel are drawn from a wide range of stakeholder organisations. Some are involved in the sustainable energy industry directly, some indirectly and others are independent.
The Panel is chaired by David Laird, a specialist in the management, design and development of self-regulation who was previously Code Manager at Energy UK, the trade association for energy retail and generation. He is an independent of the sector.
The role of the Panel is to oversee the adoption, maintenance and updating of Code. You can find further details about the role of the Panel in the Consumer Code and in the Bye-Laws. If you would like to contact a member of the Supervisory Panel, you can do so through Renewable Energy Assurance Ltd.
Please note that Panel members are acting in their own capacity.
