S1011 - Ofgem consultation on non-traditional business models: supporting transformative change in the energy market


The IET welcomes Ofgem’s discussion paper on non-traditional business models and believes strongly that the regulatory environment will need to develop to encourage fresh thinking and to avoid being an inhibitor of beneficial, but potentially disruptive, change.

Abstract Detailed answers to the questions are provided and in addition the IET discusses the future evolution of a Distribution Network Operator (DNO) to a Distribution System Operator (DSO) as this might also be described as an emerging ‘non-traditional’ business model, but is not covered specifically in the discussion paper.
