Summer Outlook Report 2019

Our 2019 Summer Outlook Report was published on 26 March. The report presents our view of the electricity and gas systems for the coming summer. Each year our outlook reports evolve to reflect our stakeholders’ feedback as we endeavour to provide more useful information for you.

This year, in response to your feedback, the report will be trialling a change in format from an 80-page document to a condensed slide pack. We believe that this will provide you with a more concise document without removing any of its relevant content. In addition, we have also provided a data workbook and a print ready version.

Please note that following an OC2 data update, slide 14 has been amended to reflect the latest data as at 20 March 2019.
