This is a survey for businesses.

Birmingham City Council is thinking of creating an energy company for Birmingham’s residents and businesses.

They believe there is an opportunity for a local company to deliver gas and electricity in a more affordable, fairer and greener way but want to know if you agree with them.

They want to ask a few questions about what you and your business thinks of your current energy provider, how much you pay for business gas and electricity, and reasons for switching (if you have any). They will also ask you some questions about your business – which will help them to understand what different businesses across the city think about energy and their energy supplier.

Your responses will be anonymous but you will also have the opportunity for your organisation to sign up for further research opportunities – but only if you want to.

The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes.

What will happen with your responses?

Your responses will be used solely for research purposes and will be kept confidential. Any comments used will be kept anonymous and individuals will not be identified.

Your personal data will only be held by or on behalf of Birmingham City Council and will not be shared with any other organisation. This survey is being conducted in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1988 and if you would like to know more about their Data Protection Policy please visit www.birmingham.gov.uk/privacy

By filling out the survey you are giving permission for Birmingham City Council to use the data for the purposes outlined above.

The survey closes on Sunday 16th July 2017.
