Western Power Distribution Stakeholder Workshop

Western Power Distribution are the company responsible for keeping the lights on, dealing with emergencies, connecting renewables to the network and a range of initiatives to help people in vulnerable situations and in fuel poverty – across the midlands.

They are running a series of stakeholder workshops where they seek feedback from a range of stakeholders on the company’s future plans.  It’s really important that they get good representation from town and parish councillors at these events as many of the topics are of real relevance for them.

This is not a marketing initiative. WPD get no money for doing this – but they have an onus placed on them to ensure that their business decisions reflect the views of their stakeholders. The events are completely free and lunch is provided.
