ELN was on tour this week for The Energy Live Consultancy Award (TELCA) roadshows which proved to be a huge success.

Both roadshows attracted more than 80 people from the industry, discussing a range of topics from the TPI Code of Conduct and how consultants feel they can raise standards themselves to what suppliers must do to improve trust in the industry.

James Summerbell, ex-Head of Group Energy Buying at Tesco also talked about what big energy users really want from consultants.
