The critical starting point for our current plans was to co-design a vision for the future of the energy market. Taking a long-term view to 2035, stakeholders including our Customer Consultative Committee and Energy Futures Customer Advisory Panel were invited to consider three alternative directions and to decide which was most likely. The result was a combination of all three.
Customers and stakeholders said ‘steady state’ was the immediate priority to reduce costs while maintaining network performance and security.
Over time, increasing ‘consumer power’ would lead to more investment in alternative energy sources.
Long term, they identified ‘consumer power’ as a steppingstone to ‘green power’ and more ambitious renewable energy targets as the most likely scenario for the future.
