Membership of Social Issues Expert Group for Northern Powergrid
I have joined the Norther Power Grid (NPG) Social Issues Expert Group. NPG are responsible for ensuring that electricity purchased from the energy supplier gets to households in the Northern area (Yorkshire through to the Scottish Border). Given the vulnerability of some customers during a power cut or disconnection (e.g. those with young children or a medical condition that requires a constant supply of energy) I have been asked to join the Social Issues Expert Group to advise on how they might best work with the most vulnerable groups (including disabled people and those with young children).
