14/10/11: Steve Johnson appointed chairman of Energy Networks Association

Steve Johnson, chief executive of Electricity North West, has been appointed chairman of the Energy Networks Association (ENA), the industry body for UK companies that carry electricity and gas to homes and businesses.

As chair of the ENA he will play a key role in representing the energy networks industry with ministers, politicians and regulators during an important period in the development and implementation of the Government’s energy policy.

Steve Johnson said: “Energy consumption is predicted to increase dramatically over the coming decades, placing huge demands on the UK network which delivers electricity and gas to homes and businesses.

“Our industry must respond to the challenges that this will bring by not only securing the investment required to build new infrastructure but looking for new innovative ways to get more out of existing assets, such as creating smart networks that can unlock capacity in new and efficient ways.”

At an event held at the Supreme Court this week, which was attended by energy minister Charles Hendry and representatives from regulator Ofgem, Steve Johnson emphasised the importance of smart networks, quoting the results of a report commissioned by ENA from Imperial College. The report suggested that UK energy consumers could save £16 billion through the introduction of smart networks.
