CUAC’s advocacy activities require a solid evidence base and are supported by research. Each year, we undertake a number of major research projects examining topical issues in electricity, gas and water. We also provide support for external research on an ad hoc basis.

Wherever possible, CUAC takes an action research approach to its projects. This means that in addition to gathering and analysing evidence, our research projects are designed to build community capacity, empower consumers and inform advocacy activities.
