New-Pin Overview


Sustainability First has led the New Energy and Water Public Interest Network, 'New-Pin'.

In a major multi-sponsor project between 2015 and 2018, New-Pin brought together public interest advocates, companies, regulators and government departments with an interest in energy and water to:

  • develop clearer alignment between different stakeholders as to what the long-term public interest looks like in these sectors;
  • increase understanding of any differences in views between stakeholders;
  • develop capacity and expertise amongst public interest advocates to ensure a more level playing field in long-term company and regulatory decisions; and,
  • improve understanding amongst company and regulatory boards of the value of public engagement in these sectors and what successful engagement looks like.
