John Crackett has been a non-executive board member of the UK Office for Nuclear Regulation since July 2011. Before this he was Managing Director of Central Networks – the UK’s second-largest distributor of electricity - and also a E.ON UK Board member responsible for Safety, Health and Environment.[1]

In a 2010 article in The Times Crackett, while Head of Networks at E.ON, criticised proposals by Ofgem regarding payment of investment in the energy network:

“We can cut carbon, we can cut costs, but we can’t do both,” said John Crackett, networks chief at Eon.
“We need to have fair returns that are attractive to investors. If they are not attractive, we are not going to reach the [government] goals because companies won’t invest.”[2]
