Panel: How can we ensure we don’t leave behind the non-digital native consumers? 13 October

James will be joining the discussion around how to bring consumers with us as we digitalise the networks, exploring:

  • Why do digital skills matter in the future of energy: what's the risk for people who are digitally excluded or don't have the skills to engage?
  • Are current consumer protections robust enough to handle the scale and pace of change when it comes to the digitalisation of energy?
  • What are the key points in the customer journey that industry and companies should be thinking about tackling?
  • What can we learn from other markets and countries?
