Energy networks respond to Ofgem's proposals on local electricity networks

Ofgem is consulting on the methodology they have proposed to use for the next five-year price controls for electricity distribution networks.

David Smith, Chief Executive of Energy Networks Association, which represents the UK and Ireland’s energy networks businesses, said:

David Smith, Chief Executive of Energy Networks Association

“It is vital that the next regulatory period for the electricity distribution network companies creates the conditions to attract investment, deliver a green economic recovery, and ensure the public can benefit from a smarter, cleaner energy system.

“The public must be able to benefit from greater efficiencies as well as new services and products including increased numbers of electric vehicles and greater electrification of heating. Although the proposals outlined today will take time to review in detail, we will continue to work with Ofgem to make sure that this vital investment can be delivered, securing economic and societal benefits now as we look to recover from the effects of the pandemic.”
