Stakeholder engagement

On this page, you’ll find out how to engage with our innovation team. You can book dates for face-to-face meetings where you can share your ideas and opinions.

Engage with us to create innovative solutions

We’re passionate about collaborating with others to create innovative solutions to our energy challenges. We believe we make better decisions in the interests of all our stakeholders when we understand their requirements, needs and priorities. 

Engaging with stakeholders is therefore at the heart of what we do – our goal is to ensure that you’re provided with an opportunity to discuss your ideas or voice your opinion to influence our decision-making.

Face-to-face meetings

We understand engaging with a large corporation like ourselves is sometimes daunting. This why we’ve put aside one day a month for small and medium enterprises to come and talk to us face-to-face.

If you’d like to meet with us, please email [email protected]. We’ll also need to know about your area of interest so we can make sure we have the right people in the room.
