Transitioning with consumers front-and-centre
The energy transformation is progressing at pace, as we strive to achieve our emissions targets while making the most of technological advancements. Consumers are at the core of all energy services, but how well are we considering their expectations during the transition? Many programs are seeking for consumers to play a role in providing services to help us decarbonise and manage power system security and reliability, but does this allow consumers to participate equitably? Chris Alexander will discuss the need for a consumer centric energy transition pathway in the context of a diverse customer base and ambitious industry goals.
