Local Business Engagement Workshop with Electricity North West – 13th November

Help Shape Lancashire’s Low Carbon Electricity Distribution Network

An interactive stakeholder workshop designed to engage group discussions on the energy topics that matter

This event will provide an opportunity to hear more about the electricity distribution network in Lancashire and provide feedback on how it is changing to respond to the needs of a low carbon future and help shape future investment across the region.

Martin Deehan, Operations Director (North) at Electricity North West will host this event and will be joined by Local Operations Managers and colleagues from Customer, Community and Local Energy, Connectionsand Investment Planning.

Electricity North West face the challenge of investing and managing a reliable network capable of delivering the UK’s ambitious targets for reductions in carbon emissions. New technology is changing the way that companies, communities and customers generate, distribute and use energy.

Adoption of electric vehicles, solar generation and battery storage are allowing people to participate in energy markets in new ways and to share the rewards of this transformation and changing the demands on distribution networks.

This interactive event is an opportunity to discuss what has been achieved, what is planned in the coming years and to seek valuable input from local businesses to help shape future business planning and strategy.

This is your opportunity to contribute – don’t miss it!

Registration is from 8.30am with 9.00am start and a 12.00pm close. Following the briefing there will be a chance to network over lunch with your fellow delegates and meet the team from Electricity North West who are keen to hear your views.

The Chamber Low Carbon team will be on hand to discuss the support and funding available through the Low Carbon programme.
