This is a traditional role and it has been tidied up significantly recently with firmer direction and the involvement of a new Secretariat supporting the Technical Director role. The Technical Director role will target specific issues of concern as well as facilitating appropriate member representation across the breadth of member interests.
This is an area in which PPI Group will develop a significant presence. It is an area where it can also demonstrate increased value for money to member companies. For example, taking a leading role in research and lobbying into hot water usage patterns and energy saving strategies will provide value to members.
In conjunction with members, there are exciting opportunities to set up and conduct industry wide research into future solutions to water and energy efficiency. This is a vital support to lobbying function above.
Links to Other Industry Bodies
The solutions being regulated to energy and water conservation are increasingly complex and cut across many domains, e.g. fire. PPI Group will forge and improve relevant links and are open to strategic mergers, or supporting appropriate activities of other bodies or at the least participating in collaborative initiatives.
