Gas and Electricity Markets Authority

Mae’r dudalen yma ar gael yn Gymraeg.

Our governing body is the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority and is referred to variously as GEMA or the Authority. It comprises non-executive and executive members and a non-executive chair.

The role of the Authority is to oversee our work and provide strategic direction.

Authority members

The Authority members are appointed by the Secretary of State at the Department of Energy and Climate Change and include seven Non-Executive Directors.

Powers and duties

The Authority's powers and duties are largely provided for in statute (such as the Gas Act 1986, the Electricity Act 1989, the Utilities Act 2000, the Competition Act 1998, the Enterprise Act 2002 and the Energy Acts of 2004, 2008, 2010 and 2011) as well as ruling European Community legislation in respect of energy regulation.

Full information on the Authority’s powers and duties, its rules and procedures and its various committees can be found in the links box at the top of this page.

Meetings

The Authority meets at least 11 times a year, usually monthly except in August. Much of the work of the Authority is carried forward by its Committees and through the advice they provide to the Authority. A schedule of planned meetings and previous minutes of the meetings of the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority are published below.
