Ofgem has published its final Decision and Direction on the Access and Forward-Looking Charges Significant Code Review.
Commenting on today's publication, Paul McGimpsey, Director of Regulation at Energy Networks Association which represents the UK and Ireland’s energy network companies, said:
“As the energy networks become even more decentralised, digitalised and decarbonised to help the UK meet its net zero targets, Ofgem’s plans will help customers to connect low carbon technologies to the grid quicker and more efficiently. We will be supporting Ofgem to ensure that the resulting changes to the energy Codes will be implemented before RIIO-ED2 begins next year.”
