How to work with us

Engage with us to create innovative solution

We are 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 are provided with an opportunity to discuss your ideas and voice your opinion to influence our decision-making.


Calls for Innovation

During 2022 we will be launching Calls for Innovation (CFI), to attract innovative solutions from across the supply chain – including academia, start-ups, SMEs and large organisations – to initiate the development of innovative projects to facilitate the energy transition and vulnerable consumers.
