As a major force in supplying energy, now and in the future, we work closely with the UK Government and regulator here at ScottishPower. Rupert Steele, our Regulation Director, is responsible for our input to energy policy and for relations with Government and regulatory stakeholders.
Rupert was appointed to this position and to the Executive Team upon joining ScottishPower in April 2007. Prior to this, he ran a consultancy business (Energy Strategies Limited) that advised utility, City and Government clients on energy policy issues.
His earlier career included 16 years working on energy issues in the Department of Trade and Industry and three years at TXU Europe.
He was appointed an OBE in 1992 and continues to help Britain prepare for its energy future through his work with us.
