Mr Cocker said: “I strongly endorse the EIC’s values and have been impressed by the successes achieved through their collaborative innovation model. I look forward to supporting them to drive forward their mission of helping utilities companies to implement cutting-edge innovation in order to ultimately improve the quality of people’s lives.”
