S865 - Regulating energy networks for the future – RPI-X@20 recommendations

Description

Regulating energy networks for the future – RPI-X@20 recommendations: IET comments to the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem).


Abstract

The IET agrees with Ofgem’s statement of objective: the proposed lengthening of the price control and the strong emphasis on innovation. The key issues over this period are likely to be (1) innovation, including a cultural change in Distribution Network Owners (DNOs) from being low cost service deliverers and asset managers to being technical innovators and catalysts for change; (2) uncertainty – a need to respond rapidly to changes such as rapid deployment of electric vehicles, with associated charging requirements; and (3) longer-term thinking – moving further along the road towards considering network development from a longer-term perspective.
