Lincoln Energy Offices
from 1947, 'East Midlands Electricity Board' (EMEB) was responsible for the electricity supply in Lincoln. After privatisation in 1990, however, it became a plc company and was no longer geographically restricted. In 1998 it was acquired by 'Powergen', who rebranded the company, along with 'Midlands Electricity plc', to become 'Central Works' in 2004, which is now part of E·ON.
Before 1973, when it became a part of the British Gas Corporation, 'East Midlands Gas Board' was responsible for Lincoln's gas supply.
