Event description

Description

The roundtable will be led by Geoff Earl, Director of Safety, Health & Environment; Tom Fielden, Finance Director and Patrick Erwin, Policy & Markets Director

Safety: We are committed to improving our safety performance for the benefit of all our stakeholders, customers and staff; this includes how we invest our money and how our employees approach their working day. Our track record in this area is already very good but we take nothing for granted.

So we’d really like to hear from you about:

  • What areas of safety are important to you and why?

  • In addition to the high standards that we abide by, are there aspects of safety that we could add or improve on for better outcomes?

  • Are you aware of best practices that we could put in place to go beyond what we currently do?

  • Are there any insights on safety that we can share with others in order to improve the industry as a whole?

Security: Protecting our power network, customers and employees from cyber criminals is also a key priority for us. We continue to invest in our IT systems and ensure our people receive education and support to help them be cyber smart.

Technology and data helps us better understand energy usage patterns to improve our networks performance. Yet it also increases the need for data security. So we’d like to hear your expert knowledge about:

  • What is the right balance when using (e.g. gathering, monitoring, working with) data?

  • How can we optimise the benefits of Smart technology whilst maintaining the highest levels of cyber security?

  • What does the future look like when we consider the growing impact of data and technology for people in their homes?

  • Are there findings on technology and security of data that we can share with others in order to improve the industry as a whole?
