'East Midlands Electricity Board' (EMEB) used to be the electricity provider for the Derby area between 1947 and 1990. This stopped in alignment with privatisation. It thereafter continued as a plc company. It was bought out by 'Powergen' in 1998 and rebranded along with 'Midlands Electricity plc' as 'Central Works' in 2004. This company is now part of E·ON.


Derby was supplied by 'East Midlands Gas Board' before it became a region of the British Gas Corporation. This was the case between 1948-1973.
