NEA Annual Conference and Exhibition 2015

Since 2010, the Chesshire Lehmann Fund has supported the cost for students and PhD researchers to attend National Energy Action's annual conference (
Feedback from one of the students who recently attended said: "It was great to meet people working in a variety of organisations. I learned a lot from the presentations, and liked how their focus varied between national-scale initiatives and specific case studies. [The Conference] might have helped me forge a partnership with a social housing provider to find some homes to study for my PhD project."
In 2015, the Chesshire Lehmann Fund is offering to support the cost for two Masters or PhD students to attend the NEA Conference. The package includes a delegate place, one night's accommodation and pre-booked public transport.
NEA's 2015 conference is being held in Sheffield on the 14 - 16 September 2015. Full details, themes and the draft programme will be available on the NEA website at
To be eligible for a free place you must be a Masters or PhD student. If you wish to apply please email using the words 'NEA Conference 2015' in the subject line of your email. In no more than 500 words, please outline why you would find it useful to attend and how your research is linked to the themes of the conference. The deadline for entries is Friday 24th July 2015.
