November Consumer Advisory Workshop

​On Tuesday 12 November 2013, TransGrid held the first of a series of ongoing events involving members of key consumer groups in NSW. 

This workshop was a stepping stone to the planned TransGrid Consumer Advisory Panel, which will open the lines of communication between the company and electricity end users, as well as inform the community about our important place in the electricity network. When putting the workshop together, TransGrid went to great effort to ensure a broad range of backgrounds and ideas were represented by key consumer groups. 

TransGrid Managing Director, Peter McIntyre began the day with a discussion on how our business is adapting to the changing energy market. Delegates from a range of TransGrid business units set the scene for our new direction. We walked the workshop members through our new five year Business Plan and Revenue Proposal and aimed to provide them with the reasoning behind our decision making process to date. The day was facilitated by an external consultant who encouraged discussion between the TransGrid team and workshop members.

The key objective of the day was to reach a shared understanding of the changing energy market and how it is reflected in our Revenue Proposal and Business Plan.
