Tonight, the British Gas Revenue Protection team will be featuring as the headline story on the BBC One Show by giving an insight on energy theft which costs our industry more than £400 Million every year. 

The One Show film crew joined the UKRPA Member in Liverpool, where Revenue Protection Officers spent two days getting a first-hand glimpse of what happens when criminals are found stealing gas and abstracting electricity through rogue supplies installed at street level. 

Mark Andrews, the British Gas head of the RPU, will talk about the cost to honest customers and how UKRPA Members are doing everything they can to stay one step ahead of the perpetrators.

You'll be able to catch the programme on BBC iPlayer after Monday's broadcast.

The UKRPA is delighted to welcome its eighteenth member organisation.

ABM Utility Solutions joins the growing numbers of companies signed up to the UKRPA, demonstrating their commitment to detecting, investigating and preventing the illegal abstraction of electricity and gas.

Company Director Martin Mackie said: "With our vast experience in investigating energy theft, combined with our ongoing present day knowledge of customers behaviour and the constant changing techniques used to not only steal energy but avoid detection, we aim to further support and add value to the UKRPA’s work in delivering change whilst addressing the various industry challenges".
