Statue of Robin Hood in Nottingham

Nottingham is a one of England's largest cities, with around 316,000 people living within its boundaries. It is located in the East Midlands; however, many like to refer to it residing in its ceremonial county of Nottinghamshire. It is perhaps most famous for its links to the great legend of Robin Hood. The incumbent suppliers in Nottingham are E·ON for electricity and British Gas for gas.

In 1947 the 'East Midlands Electricity Board' (EMEB) formed to create one of the 12 area electricity boards; however, after privatisation in 1990, it became a plc company. In 1998 it was acquired by Powergen, then rebranded, along with 'Midlands Electricity plc' as 'Central Works' in 2004. It is now part of the energy company E·ON.


Between 1948 and 1973, Nottingham's gas supply was provided by 'East Midlands Gas Board'. After this time, however, it became an area of the British Gas Corporation.
