One place for electricity network users to learn, contribute and shape the reform of GB's electricity network access and charging arrangements.
Acting as a bridge between policy, industry initiatives and the industry code governance process, Charging Futures has four key parts: a quarterly forum, a delivery body, review task forces, and Ofgem as chair.
Our energy system is evolving. Who uses the GB network and how they use it is different today than it was a decade ago. We have the opportunity to operate our electricity system more flexibly and efficiently for the benefit of end consumers.
The access and charging arrangements behind our electricity network need to evolve to create a level playing field, recover revenue in a fair way, and reduce distortions. This is a big task for GB’s network companies, network users and their customers.
Charging Futures is a programme to coordinate significant charging reform, in a way where every stakeholder can equally contribute to change. It will help network users to plan, manage and shape future reform together by providing one place to:
- Learn - about network charging and proposed changes
- Ask - Ofgem, network experts and code administrators about how it may impact you
- Contribute - at a high level through a quarterly Forum, or in detail through Task Forces
All users of the electricity transmission system pay to use it. This brief overview looks at who pays, for what, and how the charges are calculated.
We provide updates via our mailing list, please sign up to stay up to date with the latest information.
