The creation of a multi-utility regulator and network regime would help improve collaboration across sectors, lower costs and simplify the industry for consumers. That's the view of Laura Sandys, CEO of Challenging Ideas, who spoke at this week's Utility Week Live during a discussion on the next round of RIIO price controls.
Jonathan Brearley, senior partner networks at Ofgem, provided an update on its proposals for a new regulatory framework at Utility Week Live earlier this week.
Community and district heating specialist Switch2 Energy has welcomed proposals to regulate the heat network sector by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).
Ofgem has announced that it will not be launching a mid-period review (MPR) into the way the price control system for local electricity networks is working.
