Stakeholder Engagement

At ESB Networks, we understand that an open and ongoing dialogue with our customers and stakeholders is essential. This is particularly important when the demands on the electricity system are changing. We know that delivering access to secure, affordable and sustainable energy for our customers is fundamental. But we also understand that only by listening and engaging with our customers and stakeholders, can we truly reflect their needs and preferences in how we develop the network and services that we deliver.

Through our continual stakeholder engagement we hope that it will help us to evolve and enhance our relationship with our many customers and stakeholders.
