UK Power Networks has named Suleman Alli as its new director of strategy and regulation.

Sul heads up the strategy for a business that delivers essential electricity supplies to 8.1million homes and businesses across London, the South East and East Anglia.

He joins the company from Accenture, where as managing director he led the utility network operations practice in the UK, working with clients across the gas, electricity and water industries.

Sul said: “I am excited about my new role and joining UK Power Networks at a time of huge industry and external change that will impact every facet of our business. We are embracing a new regulatory model that rightly focuses on outputs important to our customers. We need to support growth in renewable generation that connects directly to our distribution networks and transform our business to deliver a world-class customer experience.”

One of his priorities this year is to deliver a significant programme to introduce digital services for customers applying for new or altered electricity connections.

“Looking outside our sector for innovation is critical. Our customers don't compare our service to other utilities; they compare it to the best service they experience. We must be rigorous in finding the best in class ideas across the globe and be disciplined in applying them to further improve our service and efficiency.

“By 2030, our industry will look very different to today. We have to tackle the challenges of delivering a low carbon, sustainable energy sector. We are focused on that,” he said. “We need to be ready to fully adopt smart technologies, storage and active network management techniques and still make sure we are true to our traditional strengths of engineering excellence and safety.” 

Sul lives with his family in the London Borough of Redbridge. He succeeds Ben Wilson who recently took up a new role as chief executive officer with Australian Gas Networks Limited.
