Northumberland FA has launched a new partnership with business energy specialist Northern Gas and Power.
The energy procurement expert becomes Northumberland FA’s preferred supplier for gas and electricity.
The new link up will provide affiliated clubs with the opportunity to benefit from Northern Gas and Power’s specialist services in energy procurement, management and real-time energy analysis – helping them to find ways to make savings on their power bills, and cut their carbon emissions.
Northumberland FA’s Executive Officer, Andrew Rose-Cook, said: “In these difficult times we’re very aware that clubs are facing significant financial pressures. Covid has had a huge impact on our grassroots clubs, and this is likely to continue even when lockdown ends.
“We hope that Northern Gas and Power’s expertise will provide clubs with detailed analysis of their energy usage and help them find potential cost saving efficiencies.”
Andrew Laird, Northern Gas and Power's UK Sales Director, said “We are delighted to forge this partnership to provide advice and support to Northumberland FA's members. Grassroots football plays such an integral part of community life and we can't wait to see its safe return. After a particularly challenging year, we will be on hand to work with the clubs to support them with their energy needs at all times."
Northern Gas and Power was named the Fastest Growing Large Business and Overall Fastest Growing Business in the Journal’s 2019 Fastest 50 Awards.
The overarching Global Procurement Group – of which NGP is the UK trading arm - currently employs around 700 people.
The business was founded in South Shields in 2012 by CEO Fokhrul Islam, and alongside its UK offices in Gateshead, Newcastle and Leeds, it also has bases in the US, France, Malta and India.
