‘Looking to the long-term: hearing the public interest voice in energy and water’
What is the long-term public interest in energy and water? How can the public interest ‘voice’ be effectively heard, today and tomorrow?
What is the long-term public interest in energy and water? Is there any consensus? How can the public interest ‘voice’ be effectively heard, today and tomorrow?
You are personally invited to join us at this major one-day conference to identify long-term public interest outcomes for the energy and water sectors and explore how these can be delivered through markets, regulation, engagement and governance.
The conference will launch Sustainability First’s ground breaking New Energy and Water Public Interest Network (‘New-Pin’) project’s final report ‘Looking to the long-term: hearing the public interest voice in energy and water – Eight agendas for change.’
Over the last three years, the New-Pin project has brought together customer champions, think tanks and NGOs with regulators, Government representatives and market actors from across the energy and water sectors to create a public interest ‘voice’.
This important conference will examine how public interest outcomes can be embedded in the energy and water sectors for the future; putting consumers and citizens at the centre of decision-making.

• Adrian Gault, Committee on Climate Change
