We have worked with stakeholders from across the energy industry to develop our Business Plan. 

It’s our ambition to continue working in a transparent, co-creative manner with the wider industry as we deliver our RIIO-2 commitments and begin business planning for 2023 onwards.

On this page, you can find information about how we work with our stakeholder group, key dates for your diary and any upcoming webinars and events.

Planning for 2023 onwards

We are now preparing for the second business planning cycle (RIIO-2 BP2) which will run from 1 April 2023 to 31 March 2025. As always, we are keen to work with a wide variety of stakeholders, ESO customers and consumer representative groups in a co-creative manner, to help shape our plans, where it is possible to do so.  

Therefore, we are holding a series of webinars where the focus will be on what is new / materially changed from our 5-year business plan (covering 2021-2026), with respect to the RIIO-2 BP2 period – please click on the links below to sign up via Eventbrite.
