Angela Love is our new Director of Strategy and Communications
Angela Love has joined ELEXON’s Executive team as Director of Strategy and Communications to lead ELEXON in the delivery of our new strategy and vision.
Angela joins ELEXON at a time of significant change within the energy market, with Ofgem looking at fuel consolidation through the centralisation of gas and electricity switching and establishing the Retail Energy Code.
Angela has over 25 years’ experience of the UK and European energy markets and has extensive pan-utility experience. For the last 12 years she has been an independent consultant working with multiple clients in the gas, electricity and water sectors.
She was Director of Gas and European Affairs at the Energy Networks Association and Chairman of the Gas Forum trade association, where she represented members with Government, Regulators and the European Commission.
Angela also spent 15 years at ScottishPower, latterly as Strategy and External Affairs Manager covering Generation, Trading, Renewables and Retail.
A time of change at ELEXON
At the same time ELEXON are leading the design of the market-wide Half Hourly Settlement programme for Ofgem, which will be a key enabler for electricity storage, aggregators, electric vehicles and time of use tariffs. The programme is also essential for the realisation of the maximum benefits of the smart meter roll out programme for the electricity market.
In this more encompassing role Angela will be responsible for understanding the energy market change landscape and ensuring that ELEXON can fully utilise the company’s systems, skills and capability for the benefit of ELEXON’s customers and energy consumers more generally.
ELEXON Chief Executive Officer, Mark Bygraves, said:
‘I’m delighted to welcome Angela to the ELEXON executive team. She brings extensive utilities industry and customer engagement experience with her, which will complement the existing ELEXON Executive team.
With the energy landscape seeing unprecedented change and the needs of our customers evolving, I’m sure Angela’s cross fuel insight and market experience will be a powerful combination and help ELEXON evolve and excel our customer’s expectations.
We are a data platform and data services company and our strategy is built around maintaining and improving our standards of service, delivering to our customers’ needs and simplifying and consolidating what have historically been complex and fragmented central services, so having a strong, highly-experienced leadership team will be vital.’
Angela said on being appointed:
‘I’m really excited to be joining ELEXON, the market leader for customer satisfaction, at a time of significant change and opportunity within the energy market.
ELEXON plays a pivotal role in the operation of the electricity market and have a team with a depth of understanding and skill, which could prove vital in delivering some of Ofgem and the Government’s ambitions.
I hope my experience of working in the industry and on delivering business strategies will bring a valuable perspective and opportunity to leverage ELEXON’s key capabilities.
I’m excited to be part of ELEXON at a time where they are focused on working collaboratively with their customers and stakeholders to shape and design improvements that will benefit the overall energy market.’
